Yesterday evening, students came together to discuss, collectively, the racial injustice and discrimination on Skidmore’s campus and created a list of demands for the administration. This morning, the POCU staged a sit-in in front of Palamountain/Bolton and presented these demands.
A video of the sit-in can be seen here.
The POCU will be holding events through Saturday. The events are as follows:
Friday, November 20
7 PM: Black Lives Matter Student Panel and Open Forum in Filene
(open to the whole Skidmore Community)
Saturday, November 21
2:00-3:30 PM: Self Care Session in Opportunity Program First Floor
(open to Students and Faculty/Staff of color and White Allies)
Feel free to comment below with any of your demands for the administration on the basis of inclusivity, specifically regarding racism and discrimination.
