Pacific's Anti-Racism Challenge

Mary J. Lomax-Ghirarduzzi

Dear Pacificans,

We are proud to offer Pacific’s first Anti-Racism Challenge for all students, staff, and faculty across our three campuses. Our goal is to build Pacific's capacity for awareness, compassion, understanding, and engagement toward social justice and systemic racial equality.

Every Thursday, beginning on Feb. 9 - April 13, there will be in-person or livestreamed Anti-Racism learning sessions available during the lunch hour, noon to 1pm. To accommodate our valued San Francisco campus, there are two in-person Anti-Racism learning sessions to take place at 1pm.

To mark your investment, participants will receive a digital badge after submitting non-graded weekly reflections. There are a total of 10 badges, with the goal of earning the colorful and coveted Burns Tower Badge, signifying completing all modules in the Challenge. To enroll in the course, click here.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact my office at
