In response the social uprising in the summer of 2020, LAVC facilitated a Call to Action event,
recognizing the recent killing of George Floyd, other cases of police brutality, social injustice,
systemic racism, and the trauma to Black students, faculty, staff and community. The College
recognized the significance of continuing this work and the Antiracism Planning Group continued to
meet through the summer to discuss issues and develop a framework for action.
The framework is meant to be a comprehensive approach to becoming an antiracist institution.
This work involves students, faculty, staff, and the community. This proposal is a work in progress
and is meant to be a living document. It addresses immediate, short-term, and long-term items, at
the local and district level. It acknowledges the work of the individual and the institution in
changing the status quo and transforming the organizational culture and structure.
