This caucus is a part of NIRSA’s commitment to engaging in conversation and organizing action. Together we want to listen, learn, use our voices, and organize action.

Join us for an opening dialogue on not only the current tragedies but the larger systems and culture that create and sustain racism in the United States. This conversation – the first of many – will wrestle with white complicity and privilege, as well as the guilt and fragility that accompany them; it will focus on our ensuing responsibility and accountability. This conversation will embrace vulnerability and modeling and be facilitated by NIRSA Board members Cara Lucia and Derek Hottell. All are welcome to listen and/or participate but the focus will be for NIRSA’s members who identify as white to do this work.

If you have an idea or would like to facilitate a caucus please let us know at or reaching out to a member of the NIRSA Board of Directors.
