Education Department Antiracism Statement

The CSB/SJU Education Department stands in solidarity with antiracists and the work of antiracism. We endorse the JFS statement.  We renew our commitment to the action of change that dismantles systems that perpetuate racism.  We recognize that we work within education systems that struggle to realize anti-racist ideals and visions, and we pledge to combat racism and all forms of oppression within education systems. We commit to the ongoing deepening of our understandings of racist policies, practices, and curricula and furthering those understandings into antiracist actions and education.  We pledge to stand in solidarity and advocate with people who experience racism or any form of oppression.  

 The CSB/SJU Education Department commits to taking actions, such as the following:  

  • Organize a series of community anti-racist and anti-oppression learning opportunities; 
  • Continue reexamining our own policies, practices, and curricula;
  • Create classroom communities that uplift the voices and scholarship of peoples who are marginalized by racism and other forms of oppression
  • Advance and actively teach antiracist teaching practices and pedagogies; and 
  • Continuously position ourselves as learners to do the ongoing internal and external work of antiracism.
