To help our caucus participants get to know our facilitators, the ACPA20 Convention Planning Team is asking folks interested in serving as caucus group moderators to share a bit about themselves and their approach to facilitation
Intersectionality and Caucusing
As a commitment to our focus on reducing the oppression of communities of color at the intersections of their identities, knowing that all oppressions are linked and that the work is ongoing; we will offer one intersectional caucus space per racial identity group. This will allow folx to discuss issues of race and decolonization in higher education and student affairs in accordance with SIRJD while applying an intentional-intersectional lens (i.e. QTPOC, etc.). When folx registered for ACPA20, they were presented with the opportunity to opt into the caucus experience and should attend at least one caucus meeting(s) only for those race(s) with which they identify before participating in the caucus sessions. The raced-based as well as race-based intersectional caucus sessions run concurrently and take place on Tuesday, March 3, 2020-Wednesday, March 4, 2020, 4:30pm-6:00pm.
We will also offer Intersections Caucus session on Thursday of convention The Intersections Caucus sessions are opportunities for folx from various racial identities to be in community and discuss issues of race and decolonization in the field of higher education and student affairs; to share ways they are implementing SIRJD in their daily practice, and develop action items for the association. When folx registered for ACPA20, they were presented with the opportunity to opt into the caucus experience and should attend at least one caucus meeting(s) only for those race(s) with which they identify before participating in the Intersections Caucus. The Intersections Caucus sessions run concurrently and take place on Thursday, March 5, 2020, 8:45am-10:45am.
At the point of submission, you will indicate whether or not you give the ACPA20 team permission to display your bio and headshot on the ACPA20 Caucusing website. It is our goal that this year’s caucus participants will begin to develop a sense of who facilitators are prior to attending caucus, so your participation in this voluntary process is appreciated.
