Welcome to the
Equality & Equity Project

 As part of our commitment to Anti-Racism, Diversity & Inclusion, the Equality & Equity Project will provide historical and present-day information about the contributions, challenges, culture, and daily lives of the many vital groups that make up our NSCC community, and the larger world.

We invite you to visit often, reflect on what you see and read, discuss it with others and, hopefully, expand your knowledge base, appreciation, and understanding of groups beyond your own. 

July Deep Dive

Beware the soft bigotry of low expectations.

“When I was 16, I walked into my high school counselor's office with a list of colleges that I wanted to apply to. My mom and I stayed up all night putting it together -- weighing the pros/cons of each school, figuring out what majors they had, etc. I was excited and hopeful.  I sat down, handed the list over to my counselor, and after she read the first three colleges (in order: UCLA, USC, and UW), she looked up at me with a confused expression.  She crumpled the paper up, threw it in the trash, and told me "We're going to look for more realistic options. Shall we?"  I was speechless. For the past 10 years of my life, I had been commuting across three cities to get to school because my parents wanted me to have the best education possible.”  ~ Sy Stokes, Ph.D.

Please watch Dr. Stokes’ spoken word response to this experience in “Dear WhiteCounselor.”                                      

Think about this:

Don't wait until October.  Write to your city or town government representative to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous People’s Day like these cities did.
