Becoming an Anti-racist Agent of Change Through Equitable Course Content

Perspectives from GSPIA Students of Color Alliance (SOCA) and the Cross Policy Program Anti-Racism Coalition

Presenters: Uchenna Mbawuike (MPPM Candidate); Adelina Treviño Bradshaw (MPA) Candidate; Gifty Owusu-Tawiah (MID) Candidate; Natividad Zavala (MID) Candidate

Educated policymakers have created and continue to create discriminatory policies that cause death and harm to marginalized communities. For example, Ray Kelly, New York City’s longest-serving police commissioner, went on to become the chief enforcer of NYC’s racist stop-and-frisk policy after receiving his master’s from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government; KirstjenNielsen, former Secretary of Homeland Security, defended the family separation policy after graduating from Georgetown’s Walsh School of Foreign Service. The curriculum that we study influences our behavior.  During our workshop, participants will learn how to create a learning environment that supports diverse identities by examining how current classroom norms uphold systemic, institutionalized natures of oppression by not implementing the ideals of diversity and inclusivity in their classroom.
