Anti-Racism CBL Resources

Background

The murder of George Floyd, along with so many other Black people, has brought renewed attention to racial injustice in our country and the urgent need to work toward systemic change.

Overview of Resources

This page comprises a variety of resources, including from the AJCU network, Campus Compact and other partners, on how to work toward anti-racism in the context of community-based learning and community engagement, including teaching tools, academic articles, and local organizations.

Tools for Learning and Change

For community-based learning to truly meet community-defined needs and help students learn about the realities of our society, it has to involve a keen awareness of the role of racism and its impact on Black lives and other communities of color. To engage with the community as “men and women for others,” students at a Jesuit and Catholic university must first reflect on and explore personal biases and privileges and consider how we bring these into our worlds. Through discussion about root causes of injustice and reflection on ways to stand in solidarity, CBL provides an opportunity to become aware of the pervasive impact of racism and to take action to combat it.
