Mission–To clear ignorance from the mind, and negativity from the heart. We are here to help others understand the culture of people of color, especially Black people. In that, we help the world become more understanding and tolerant.
Vision–A world where critical conversations occur and create an environment where we educate the mind and empower the heart so ignorance is no more.
Purpose–To educate others to create a more tolerant and judgement-free atmosphere for people to come with questions and for us to provide answers about race, ethnicity, culture and justice as they relate to people of color.
The group meets Wednesdays during Mod 3 and discusses issues and solutions related to black culture and how we can work as a community to find solutions. The meetings are open to everyone, no matter your gender or ethnicity. The group also hosts events such as potlucks and speakers. All events are open to the GA community.
The group is off to a strong start, focused on addressing Gilmour's diversity and inclusion and creating programs and events that ensure we are creating a more tolerant and understanding atmosphere for all people.
Gilmour's Linked Up club aims to raise Autism Awareness. A team participates in the annual Autism Speaks Walk to fundraise in an effort to have a voice with legislators, access information and resources, support research and medical discovery, and help fund local services through the mission of Autism Speaks.
