bipoc campus communities

  • Partner with GU Farmers' Market to reserve specific blocks of days in the farmers’ market schedule to feature local, minority-owned businesses from the DMV (Black-owned, Latinx-owned, etc). This also includes an initiative to feature more economically-accessible vendors overall.

  • Campaign Georgetown’s administration to establish direct and intentional programming for holidays or months that celebrate our diverse community, separate from those organized by student organizations.

  • [DEPENDENT ON COVID-19] Launch a block party to celebrate DC’s local Black culture, featuring local performers, activists, and vendors.

  • Connect and work with the Asian Pacific Islander student activists and other API organizations on campus to support the creation of an Asian American Studies Program.

  • Connect and work with the Asian Pacific Islander student activists and other API organizations on campus to support the permanent creation of an Asian American affinity space as an extension of the Asian American HOME Magis Rowhouse.

  • Collaborate with the Black Theater Ensemble and other Black art groups to support the establishment of a Black arts space.

  • Collaborate with the Latino Theater Ensemble and other Latino art groups to support the establishment of a Latinx arts space.

  • Demand the diversification of courses, programming, and the hiring of more professors of color throughout all majors across all schools. Emphasis should be placed on Latino Studies and other majors that primarily focus on POC (nationally or internationally) without proportionate representation in staffing.

  • That being said: there must be an increase in BIPOC professors and faculty in all fields, especially in STEAM, where they are the most underrepresented at Georgetown. 

  • Work with the Provost Office to develop a fellowship that allows BIPOC graduates pursuing education the opportunity to teach at Georgetown University, increasing faculty diversity.

  • Work with and institutionally support the initiatives Georgetown’s Black Student-Athlete Coalition, a student-run organization that aims to support Black student-athletes and push for anti-racist reforms within Georgetown University Athletics. 

Push Georgetown’s administration’s for consistent, immediate action on the GU272: 

  • Integrate the acknowledgment and history of Georgetown’s slave-holding legacies into every New Student Orientation programming. 

  • Install placards and markers to respectfully identify the enslaved gravesites that exist across campus, under buildings.

  • Set an official timeline on designing and executing prominent GU272 memorialization on-campus. This must launch within the first six months of our presidency. 

  • Demand Georgetown University moves forward on the recommendations provided by the Working Group on Slavery, Memory, and Reconciliation that have yet to be addressed.

  • Require immediate action on the proposed, administrative initiative to support community-based projects with Descendant communities. Once implemented, this initiative must have resources commensurate with or exceeding the amount that would have been raised annually through the student fee proposed in the Referendum (as promised by President DeGioia).
