Weed Out Hate
Color of Change
Indoor Recess Virtual Pitch Competition
When hate crimes occur on campus, colleges are slow to punish perpetrators and swift to crackdown on protests.
Get admin to strengthen and clarify anti-harassment policy regarding the use of abusive, threatening, or harassing speech AND implement policy that protects student-led protests from administrative retaliation.
We knew we needed the help of both admin and students in order to create meaningful change.
Through our research we found that although both parties acknowledge that racial harassment is an issue, they don't take action because they're either underprepared or uncomfortable discussing racial inequality on campus.
It's scary to voice your opinion about "controversial" or racist issues. And for admin especially, they fear legal backlash and damage to their school's reputation if they misstep.
But it's even scarier when you say nothing at all because hate grows in silence.
Give admin the action plan they need to respond effectively and show students why we need their voices to enact change.
Weed Out Hate: Hate is powerful, but human will is stronger. By using our voices, our actions, and our awareness – we can get closer to uprooting it.
