Words have power.
Even with the best intentions it is still possible to cause harm to even those we aim to represent and provide space for. We at Concerned Students of Middlebury find personal accountability to be important. As we examine ways to combat the systemic oppression and marginalization of underrepresented and underserved communities, we must also turn this critical lens on ourselves and analyze ways we may contribute to this cycle.
While there are certainly instances we may have missed, we do want to address two of our previous transgressions.
We want to be held accountable.. We all have a responsibility to learn and grow as conscious community members. We implore all of you to do the same and join us in our mission to both grow and support our campus community as a whole.
