Please view the 10 Points Towards Decolonization demand list. 

Town halls, suggestion boxes, and other passive actions does NOTHING to ease the racial, social, and financial disparities that are embedded in our institution. I’m extremely disappointed in the lack of exertion of AU in their proposed solutions, as there’s brief acknowledgment for the issues at hand with NO ACTION STEPS, which demonstrates complete indifference, in addition to a lack of accountability and compassion.

We speak of inclusion and yet non-BIPoC voices drown out the voices of marginalized communities. We speak of accountability, yet we stray away from racial conversation that doesn’t stroke the egos of “white saviors.” I am DONE with the complicity. CHANGE IS NOW. 

I call for American University administration to review the demands listed in the “10 Points Towards Decolonization” and make the immediate changes towards its institution. In order to become an anti-racist institution, we must start recognizing our own contributions towards white supremacy and take action to reverse the damages that we’ve done. 

I’m willing to meet with any faculty member, student, or admin to further speak about these issues or for feedback.
