Executive Summary of the TRC Final Report


International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

Committed Citizens Changing the World

We are excited to announce that the RAN will be hosting an event on Tuesday March 28th in B121 from 10:00-11:30 to commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The theme of the event is "Citizens Creating Change" with highlights from a panel of local community members/citizens who are working to combat racism in all its forms. Learn about and discuss ways to take action, get ideas, and form allied partnerships in response to rising populist, oppressive, and anti-immigrant discourses. The event is open to the UFV and surrounding community. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you then.

February 22, 2017 - Community Forum on Immigration and Racial Discrimination
9:00 to 5:00 - online at

The Race and Antiracism Network (RAN) exists at UFV to confront racism and discrimination in all of its forms by creating a safe and open space to share personal experiences and discuss local, national and international issues of racism and discrimination.  The RAN denounces the recent executive order by President Trump as one that is fundamentally racist, xenophobic and exclusionary in practice.  We stand in solidarity with those whose livelihoods and freedoms are impacted. As events continue to unfold, the impact of this ruling on students, staff and faculty may present at different times and in differing ways. To this end, the RAN invites all members and friends of the RAN to attend our next meeting on Thursday, February 16th (noon-1:30pm Rm. A229). We offer this time to stand together, support each other, and voice our concerns as members of the university community who are personally and professionally committed to combating racism with the university and beyond.
