This year we are also offering an Affinity Intersection Caucus space. As a commitment to our focus on reducing the oppression of communities of color at the intersections of their identities, knowing that all oppressions are linked and that the work is ongoing; we will offer one affinity intersection Caucus space per racial identity group. This space supports discussion around issues of race and decolonization in higher education and student affairs in accordance with ACPA’s Strategic Imperative for Racial Justice and Decolonization while applying an intentional- intersectional lens (i.e. QTPOC, etc.). These spaces are in addition to the Racial Identity-focused Caucus spaces that center race predominantly without an intentional intersectional lens, though discussions of intersections of identity may also take place in such sessions. Affinity Intersection and Racial Identity-focused Caucus spaces are available on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thursday // Intersections Caucusing
The Intersections Caucus has an Intergroup dialogue design which provide opportunities for folx from various racial identities to be in community and discuss issues of race and decolonization in the field of higher education and student affairs; to share ways they are implementing SIRJD in their daily practice, and to develop action items for the Association. Folx are highly encouraged to attend at least one caucus session offering only for the race(s) with which they identify before participating in the Intersections Caucus which takes place on Thrusday.
