Macalester students Yosan Worota ’23 and Alice Bruno ’23 have been awarded $10,000 grants from the Davis Projects for Peace program. The program supports a cohort of students who design and implement their own community-centered, peacebuilding projects during the summer break.
Like the rest of the U.S., there is a long overdue, necessary, and inevitable racial reckoning happening at Macalester, and the larger higher ed community. It is the responsibility of every white person in our community to confront the forces within us that prefer silence and other forms of complacency, white fragility, active racism, and hate over taking responsibility and creating meaningful change. We all have our own unique strengths and abilities to contribute to dismantling racism and white supremacy as we also work to reimagine, support, and strengthen just and equitable communities — with an urgent focus right here on campus.
Macalester is one of only 361 institutions that has been awarded the prestigious Carnegie Community Engagement Classification for excellence in civic engagement.
