BLACK LIVES MATTER

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” – James Baldwin

Statement of Solidarity

The Cadena Cultural Center, Grads to Be and Transfer Center team grieves along with our students, staff, faculty, and community members impacted by the acts of injustice and anti-black violence in Minnesota, Kentucky and across the country.  We recognize that these recent events have amplified awareness of the systemic racism that has disproportionately harmed Black communities for generations. We stand in solidarity with and in support of our Black Community nationwide.  If it happens to one of us it happens to all of us.

By collaborating with and bringing together a network of campus and community partners, the Cadena Cultural Center will strive to promote spaces for the Fullerton College Community to process our emotions and engage in meaningful dialogue.  We will also further educate ourselves and use our online platforms to post resources and information on how to support and get involved in anti-racist work.

“You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.” – Angela Davis

In solidarity,

Cadena Cultural Center, Grads to Be Program, and Transfer Center

Resources for Black Folks and Allies

The Cadena Cultural Center has curated a Resource Document for Allies and Black folks for the campus community who would like to gain a deeper understanding of historical and present-day manifestations of anti-blackness and racism in the United States. 

In this document, you will find resources to help advance your educational and personal growth around issues of racial justice. We hope this resource document will serve to both affirm and support you if you belong to a group that has been impacted by racism. If you identify as an ally, we hope this provides you a place to deepen your knowledge on the issues as you take action against anti-blackness and racism. We will continue adding resources. 

We also encourage you to connect with the Fullerton College Umoja Community and A2MEND.

Black led Organizations
  • Black Alliance for Just Immigration: “BAJI educates and engages African American and black immigrant communities to organize and advocate for racial, social and economic justice. Local BAJI Organizing Committees in New York, Georgia, California and Arizona build coalitions and initiate campaigns among communities to push for racial justice.”
  • Black Lives Matter Los Angeles Chapter: “Black Lives Matter emerged from the hearts and minds of our three co-founders: Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi. It came to life right here in Los Angeles, where the first chapter was birthed. Our herstory is an important telling of the emergence of Black Lives Matter, and Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles specifically, as a reclamation of and recommitment to Black radical organizing and Black freedom struggle.” 
  • Hatian Bridge Alliance :  “Haitian Bridge Alliance(HBA), also known as “The Bridge” is a coalition of Haitian non-profit organizations and community activists who have come together to serve the Haitian community in California and beyond. The organization came together as a result of the Haitian immigrant crisis that hit San Diego. Their singular focus is to ensure the new immigrants’ success as they navigate their new lives in the United States. While their current work is focused more on this crisis, their long-term vision is to expand the visibility and reach of the Haitian community in California and to assist wherever they are needed.” 
  • The Black OC: “Creative movement utilizing hip-hop to build community, establish equality among all demographics & promote higher standards for urban culture.” 
  • The G.R.E.E.N. Foundation: “The G.R.E.E.N. (Gathering Resources to Educate and Empower through Networking) Foundation (TGF), a community-based nonprofit organization (http://www.thegreenfoundation.net), was founded in 2003 with an overarching mission to improve health and eliminate cancer health disparities impacting diverse African American communities in California through health education and promotion, screening, and awareness activities. As a main tool in its advocacy, TGF uses a community- and faith-based culturally competent conference model designed to educate African Americans, with an emphasis on reducing health disparities through understanding cancer, the importance of participating in clinical trials, early screening, and in making healthy preventative and lifestyle choices.” 
  • UndocuBlack Network: “The UndocuBlack Network (UBN) is a multigenerational network of currently and formerly undocumented Black people that fosters community, facilitates access to resources, and contributes to transforming the realities of our people, so we are thriving and living our fullest lives.”
