R.A.W. is comprised of a professional committee, where selected staff and graduate students work to develop the curriculum for R.A.W. participants and facilitate program workshops. The Committee members who lead the workshops are identified as R.A.W Guides who work with each cohort of students to create brave, affinity spaces for students to engage in meaningful dialogue about anti-racist, anti-supremacist efforts, racial justice, and allyship. We use the terminology 'guide', as opposed to 'facilitator' to further emphasize that this is a space for free exchange of ideas, thoughts, feelings and opinions. 2017-18 R.A.W. Guide Information is forthcoming.
Naseeb Bhangal, SDMA Supervisor for R.A.W.
Naseeb currently serves as the Program Coordinator for Women of Color Initiatives and Community Outreach for SDMA. She meets regularly with the committee providing intentional support and guidance to R.A.W Committee members. "SDMA is proud to offer a brave space for self-identifying White students to explore their identities as it relates to race. Joining this space will spark courageous conversations and inspire others to take action and create change".
