Associated Students Travel to Museum of Tolerance

assc at museum of toleranceFor their second and final leadership retreat of the year, The Associated Students of Skyline College (ASSC) traveled to Los Angeles to attend the Museum of Tolerance. The members of the council learned first-hand about the events during the Holocaust and other acts of  intolerance, and social justice, throughout history. The museum’s purpose is to educate students, leaders and community members about the history of intolerance but also teach, nurture and encourage acts of tolerance. During their visit they had the privilege of hearing the story of a holocaust survivor, Rolf Gompertz. The rest of the retreat focused on team building among the council members, social justice and cultural competency training, and event planning.

Their experiences at the museum inspired the creation of ASSC’s first-ever Holocaust Remembrance Day event which took place on January 26, and will shape the format for the council’s events moving forward the rest of this semester.

February is African American History Month

calendar of eventsAfrican American History Month kicks off on February 1 and the Associated Students (ASSC) and Black Student Union (BSU) are hosting tons of events to commemorate the wide ranging experiences of African Americans in the U.S. and to connect and share information with the campus community.

National African American History Month celebrates the contributions that African Americans have made to American history in their struggles for freedom and equality and deepens our understanding of our Nation’s history. Black History Month officially began in 1976, when President Gerald R. Ford asked Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”¹ Every year since then, every American president has dedicated February as African American History Month.
