SACRAMENTO, Calif. - April 12th marked the beginning of Ramadan, a holy month observed by millions of Muslims around the world who collectively take part in fasting, self-reflection, charitable giving, and holding space with community. We send our best wishes to the California Community College students, staff, and faculty who are participating in Ramadan and may you have softness and ease throughout this month.
The Student Senate for California Community Colleges recognizes the vast and fluid multicultural experiences of our student body, which underscores the richness of learning and leadership on our campuses. We believe that diversity, along with culturally responsive teaching and learning perspectives are essential to the way we see, think, and interact with each other. Furthermore, we are hopeful that cultivated spaces of belonging (both on and off campuses), can lead to a more equitable and inclusive future for everyone.
