Greetings everyone, and welcome to the AHANA+ Leadership Council (ALC) at Boston College!
ALC will continue striving to promote advocacy, normalize dialogue regarding race and identity, and be present and engaged in a variety of ways to foster a more open campus community and climate for Boston College students. This year we have been incorporating the plus (+) in the AHANA acronym; we are developing a stronger community, which expands beyond the African, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American communities to reach other marginalized communities who may feel inaudible due to the rigid AHANA acronym.
While remaining proactive advocates and holding the student body, faculty and administration accountable, ALC’s goal is to continue to promote a change for a presence, recognition, and place for AHANA+ students in terms of race, ethnicity, culture, creed, religion, sexual orientation, disabilities, socioeconomic status, and other intersectional social identities. ALC will act as the voice of not only the AHANA+ community, but the voice of students who wish to have a more diverse and inclusive campus.
I push you all to continue to challenge our leadership and purpose in order to enhance our worth, image, and mobilization on this campus and in the greater Boston area. All thoughts and suggestions are welcome as we have our open meetings, town halls and other staple events. If you have any questions about ALC or just want to talk, do not hesitate to reach out to me.
