Letter in Support of Marginalized Students

To the students of De Anza College,
 
        In light of recent events, it seems to be increasingly necessary to confirm, amplify, and redouble our commitment as Classified Professionals to you, the students. And not just to students as a whole, but specifically to those who are suffering marginalization at the hands of our governmental systems and of societal stigmas that we as educators have not yet managed to counter.
 
We affirm our duty to educate all students.
We affirm our duty to educate undocumented students.
We affirm our duty to educate immigrant and international students.
We affirm our duty to educate Muslim and Jewish students.
We affirm our duty to educate students of all faiths, and students of no faith.
We affirm our duty to educate Black and Brown students.
We affirm our duty to educate low-income students.
We affirm our duty to educate students of all genders and sexual orientations.
We affirm our duty to educate Veteran students.
We affirm our duty to educate students with disabilities.
We affirm our duty to educate Foster Youth students.
We affirm our duty to educate students who have not been previously given the resources and education which we affirm to be their right.
 
        We, the undersigned, pledge to you that we support you in your career goals, in your education, and we support your health and well-being. We, by our placement within this institution, know of many resources which may be of help to you, and we can go to each other for more information when we do not have the answers immediately.
 
We have programs, services, and clubs which are designed to serve all of our students.
Please know that we want you here at this campus.
Please know that we want to help you and see you succeed.

To sign this affirmation and pledge, please add your name here*.
