The Black Student Union at the University of California, Santa Cruz, serves as the unifying body for Black organizations on campus, as well as the Black student body. BSU is charged with ensuring the well-being of the Black community by engaging in political issues that pertain to the Black community on campus and at-large.
BSU serves as a place and space for all Black students from each part of the African diaspora to learn together, to teach together, to offer support for the various racialized macro-and-microaggressions, and also to challenge each other around some harmful ideologies we may hold toward practicing a fuller love for ALL Black people. We are an organization that’s about centering the liberation of ALL Black people.
With this said, and with the liberation of all of us on our minds, we know that we can not tolerate anti-Black racism and colorism; sexism and misogynoir; homophobia, transphobia, and queerphobia; or heterosexism and patriarchy.
We will preserve, protect, and cultivate the BSU space by any means necessary.
