What Can I Do?

News Story

Pace's Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion collaborated with campus partners to create a list of resources that will help each individual member of the Pace Community take action against systemic racism, as the University further establishes its commitment to being anti-racist across all facets of the institution.

As a member of the Pace Community, you might be wondering what steps you may be able to to take individually to better educate yourself on the many injustices of systemic racism, and/or how you can best take action this important moment. While Pace is committed to doing the difficult, consistent work over the long-term as an institution, a number of offices—including Pace's Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the Center of Community Action and Research, the Mortola and Birnbaum Libraries, SDCA—created a list of resources that intend to answer the question "what can I do?" right now. 

Members of the Pace Community are highly encouraged to view the entire document, and draw upon the resources suggested. Below, we've listed a small sampling resources from each sub-category. Faculty and staff are also highly encouraged to join the senior leadership in participating in the 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge
