Achieving Racial Justice Together: A Call to Action

Frederick Community College (FCC) is deeply committed to racial inclusion, equity, and justice. We stand against racist and oppressive pedagogy and practice. Racist beliefs, behaviors, and sentiments are counter to everything we seek to be, teach, and to learn at FCC. As an institution of learning and a community of learners, we have a unique opportunity to be part of the paths forward towards racial justice and healing. FCC has an institutional racial equity plan which strengthens access and success for all student populations and making equity an institution-wide principle.

As a community, we can support one another and imagine a different future and enact it. Therefore, this is a call to action for us all - whether that action be a commitment to learn more, to change how we engage, or to connect with those around us who are most closely impacted and struggling.

Explore the information, resources, statements, and lessons below to broaden and deepen your knowledge. FCC has a full calendar of events, dialogues, and courses to support moving our community forward. We invite you to join us, and we challenge you to actively participate.
