CARLA â€” Coalition for Anti-Racist Literacy
2023 Anti-Racism Action at BMCâ€”Join a Circle
The Anti-Racism Collective Circles (ARCCs) were created by the Coalition for Anti-Racist Literacy (CARLA) in 2022 to hold a space open to students, faculty, and staff to communally understand and practice anti-racism and provide concrete responses to acts of racism that occur on campus.
In 2023, two new fall circles will each engage in a series of five conversations, held every other week, starting the week of Sept. 25. You donâ€™t have to commit to participating in all five conversations, however each session will build and enrich your experience, so please try to sign up for a time you can regularly attend. All levels of contribution are welcome! The Tuesday ARCC will meet at 3 p.m. on Zoom, and the Friday ARCC will meet at 9 a.m. in person.
Remember, even if you miss the first conversation, it is never too late to join a circle!
To get more information or sign up for an ARCC, email email@example.com with your preferred day as the Subject.

Growing out of the 2018 Posse Plus Retreat, this grassroots groupâ€™s mission is to create and sustain a shared, accountable, conceptual framework and toolkit for anti-racist literacy in classrooms and the community of the College.
Knowledge and skills that allow people to interpret the dynamics of race and racism at work in a situation and participate in order to challenge and change them.
Anti-racism, equity, accountability, and inclusivity.
