Fight Anti-Asian Racism Town Halls

Dear Students and Colleagues,

The continued and unprecedented rise in violence against members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community has shocked and hurt our Golden West College family.

We are saddened and outraged by the killings yesterday in Georgia—with six of the eight dead identified as being of Asian descent.

Media reports of violence continue to come from all over the United States, including in California. Our campus community is proud to be more than 30% AAPI, and our thoughts are with GWC students, faculty and staff who are experiencing pain and fear over these targeted acts of violence.

We remain steadfast in our commitment to combatting racism and discrimination. Golden West College condemns all acts of violence against our community members. And we must not only condemn, but continue the equity work in which the college has engaged.

Later today, Golden West College will host the first of two sessions of Fight Against Anti-Asian Racism Town Hall.

Students-only session:
