Please join us for a discussion of the intention and impact of “It’s Okay to Be White”. A flier, with this message, was found on the Clark College campus one week before a rally with the same message was held on the 29th anniversary of the murder of Mulugeta Seraw. Mr. Seraw was studying at Portland State University when neo-Nazis beat him to death. 

Please attend one of the open forums for discussion and to plan events for the Winter Quarter. Building community ties will empower those who are vulnerable and strengthen our ability to support each other through these times. We invite the entire college community and our broader community to participate. We are coming together to share our pain, our concerns, and to strengthen our community.
 
No Signs, Banners, or Flags will be permitted. 
 
These forums are sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Equity at Clark College and endorsed by Clark College President, Bob Knight, Clark College Association for Higher Education, Washington State University – Vancouver Office of Equity and Diversity, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) SW WA.
