Equity Advocates

Who Are We?

Equity Advocates are ACC faculty, staff, and students and members of community and college organizations who are committed to the common goal of institutionalizing equity across systems to create a society where inclusion, success, or failure are no longer predicted by ability, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic or citizenship status, or any other human difference.

The IDEAL Center convenes monthly gatherings to encourage the exchange of relevant information and provide mutual support to transform systems. The center welcomes community equity advocates of all backgrounds, independent of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, language, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, and/or socioeconomic status. College and community members and organizers facilitate learning experiences, model conflict mediation skills, and host dialogues. Gatherings are held every first Thursday at 9:30 a.m. All are welcome to join the conversation (free and open to the public).
