Associated Student Government Position Statement

Associated Student Government Position Statement

The Associated Student Government (ASG) of Clover Park Technical College (CPTC) strives every day to adhere to and encompass unity through diversity, equity and inclusion. We stand firm that all human beings, no matter what race, gender identity, age, religion or background matter. We condemn any form of discrimination. Right now, it is Black Lives that are in danger and the Black community that needs our support and our demand for justice.

We have been witnessing the murders occurring in America because of racism and the injustice that comes with discrimination.

Many of us have experienced our own form of this discrimination and know how these events can follow and affect us for the rest of our lives. For those of us that have not had to experience this; we only ask that you not stay silent. All voices in this matter need to be heard. 

We also ask that you not stand aside and be complacent when witnessing another human being suffering from an injustice being done to them. We all have a responsibility to each other, our school, and our community and ask that if you decide to participate in the current protesting, to do so with your best judgement and to do so safely. 

We care. 

We invite you to join us in more work.

Let us all remember and honor the human beings who have lost their lives due to racism and discrimination recently, along with the many others who have died before them. 

Manuel Ellis, Benny Branch, Said Joaquin, Breonna Taylor, Ahmad Aubrey, George Floyd
