Candidate for E&I Representative
21307F53-E60F-4009-AFA6-B0F9964D018F.heic

My name is Grace Williams and I am running to be one of your Equity and Inclusion Cabinet Members. I believe that through facilitating a Clark environment that is united, empathetic, willing, open, loving, and accepting, we will be able to create accessibility, equity, and equality. Along with creating spaces for understanding and inclusion, I want to make sure the E&I cabinet is addressing your specific concerns. My goal is for the cabinet to be not only an effective force for change, but a place of support for those who feel silenced and ignored. Last year, as a E&I  cabinet member, I was on the Campus Security task force and pushed for UP to be disarmed and moved off campus. I was also apart of the collective “RISE” that put together two weeks of Black and Diversity programming. I fully believe “the people United will never be defeated.

I am running for E&I Representative because I have always had a passion for creating spaces for those within marginalized communities and advocating for them when issues arise. 

 For Clark, I want to bring more spaces as well as provide more support within these spaces for students of color in all areas of their college experience whether that be through internships, student life, housing, and more.

Alex Nazaire '22
Candidate for E&I Representative 

 Hello all, my name is Alex Nazaire (he/him/his) and I am a Haitian-American senior majoring in Combined Languages. I grew up overseas in Cameroon and Rwanda and took part in ACE in the summer of my first year. I am currently serving as the secretary of Black Student Union as well as the president of the Latin American Student Organization. As an Afro-LatinX with a multicultural background, I am determined to serve BIPOC, LGBTQ+, international students and other students of marginalized identities by working towards the goal of the institution providing not just equality but equity for the underrepresented. Furthermore, it is indispensable that we have more faculty and staff of marginalized communities/backgrounds as this will play a robust role in ensuring equity for all students.

Kuanda, Kadijha '22
Candidate for International Student 
Representative 

 As an international student, I have firsthand witnessed the challenges that come with navigating in this country, classrooms, and day-to-day interactions. One of the hardest challenges, however, was learning and experiencing what it means to be a BIPOC in the US. This last year specifically I have been working within the International Student Rights Coalition (ISRC),  an organization I co-founded, to address international students' concerns and form a community. Some of our main objectives right now are: creating a physical space for international students to find support and bond in, establish an affinity space to heal and feel understood in, increase the number of events/workshops post-orientation to foster community and support, and lastly, finding an international student advisor who can assist students on a day-to-day basis.  Most importantly, I want to connect more to the overall international student community (on and off-campus, in and outside of the US) so I can more effectively support you in addressing and voicing your concerns as well as work with you to create an environment in which we can unapologetically be ourselves and thrive!
