Katherine Spinnato started this petition to University of Connecticut and

We are student leaders at the University of Connecticut who are striving for a more intersectional and Anti-Racist education curriculum.

In response to the worsening racial climate on campus, a series of hateful racially targeted events, and a prolific national history of racial injustice, the Academic Affairs Committee of USG, UConn NAACP, UConn Collaborative Organizing, and the Honors 4 Diversity Program intends to reinvent the way we approach Anti-Racist pedagogy at UConn. 

We created a proposal, which calls for: 

1. A mandatory first-year 1 credit Anti-Black Racism course 

2. The implementation of two-courses into the General Education Oversight Committee's General Education plan that both address how diversity, inclusion, and social justice are intrinsically linked to the societal institutions in our country. 

In order for this proposal to become an academic policy at UConn, we need YOU.
