These horrific and senseless acts are heartbreaking. We recognize how these tragedies impact the Asian community around our country. We are so saddened that such a joyous celebration of culture and tradition and others going about their daily lives were overshadowed by grief, loss of innocent lives, and fear for one's [...]

President Rogers and VP Of DEI Davis-White Eyes’ Statement Regarding Shooting at Club Q

2022-11-21T10:54:12-08:00

Dear Fielding Community members, It is with shock and deep sadness that we send this message to you regarding the shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs, which took the lives of many 2SLGBTQ+ individuals. This atrocity occurred just hours before a scheduled event memorializing the Transgender Day of Remembrance, an event that commemorates the individuals lost to anti-transgender violence — particularly those who are most vulnerable to this form of violence: BIPOC transgender women and femmes. As this tragedy continues to unfold, we are reminded of the 2016 shooting that occurred in Orlando, Florida, at the Pulse nightclub in [...]

VP of DEI Reflections: Native American Heritage Month

2022-11-15T06:57:51-08:00

John Trudell, Santee-Dakota activist/poet, in referencing the term Native American once said that “We are not Indians, and we are not Native Americans, We are older than both concepts. We are the People, We are the Human Beings.” That statement stands today as we celebrate Native American Heritage Month, not because it questions the use of terms, but rather it is because it centers the humanity, self-determination, agency, voice, and knowledge of First Nation peoples. Without this acknowledgment, we are bereft of any deep connection to one another, adrift in a sea of imaginings that are unmoored from the Indigenous [...]

National Disability Employment Awareness Month Reflections from V.P. of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

2022-10-24T08:38:32-07:00

Frida Kahlo “The Broken Column” is one of Mexicana artist Frida Kahlo’s most-known paintings, profoundly moving in its portrayal of her life as a person with multiple disabilities, including polio, a broken spinal column, and pelvis damage from a car accident. The greatest motivator for her painting came from her disabilities. The Broken Column serves as a visual of her reality and a powerfully resilient reminder of her strength. “I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality,” Kahlo stated regarding her artwork. Kahlo serves as an interlocutor asking society why disabilities should remain hidden. Her [...]
