This is a space of respect and dignity of everyone in this class. This classroom will be a space where the targeting of students based on their identities, beliefs, appearances, or immigration statuses will not be tolerated. As an educator, I fully support the rights of all students to pursue their education and to live free from the fear of deportation; prison; Islamophobia; anti-Semitism; anti-black racism; racist and xenophobic violence; homophobic, transphobic and sexual violence; ableism; and, other forms of hatred and discrimination. If you have any concerns about deportation and/or any issues that are interfering with your autonomy, safety, and mobility, please feel free to speak with me. I will respect your wishes concerning confidentiality.
