We are a group of students devoted to fostering an inclusive dialogue on gender issues, starting with the Claremont Colleges. We acknowledge unique character and voice as essential elements of community that should be appreciated in individuals, not drowned out by the majority.

The Asian American Student Union (AASU) is an organization for self-identified Asian American (encompassing East, Southeast, South Asian, Middle Eastern and Mixed Race populations), Pacific Islander, and Alaskan Native students at Scripps College. AASU seeks to strengthen the Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) communities on campus and at the other Claremont Colleges by providing a safe space for our members to explore issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, and nationality. Our internal programming encourages our members to develop closer relationships with each other and offer the unique opportunity to learn from their peers. We work in coalition with Asian American organizations on the other campuses on social and political programs to build a wider, more inclusive Asian American community. We also work in partnership with the Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies to better fit the Asian American Studies curriculum to student needs. We hope to love, encourage, support, and politicize our membership. In looking forward, we also hope to develop closer and more productive relationships with other students of color on Scripps' campus. We see this emphasis on collaboration as a manifestation of our collective political commitment to cross-race, cross-ethnic struggles. Some of our past programming includes panels on white privilege and class to initiate discourse regarding these issues and screening of films by Asian American producers and/or featuring Asian American actors and actresses. We will continue to bring musicians, spoken word artists and authors to campus who inspire political consciousness and incorporate issues of Asian American identity in their works. Every year, we start off the semesters with a weekend long retreat to foster community building and to welcome our new members. We have weekly meetings that include discussions and programming. We hope to have monthly dinners or events to promote a strong sense of membership within the group.

I AM THAT GIRL
Contact

This isn't just a women's movement, it's a human movement. And we need everyone. A girl's physical, emotional and mental well-being is rooted in her self-worth. And we are living in an epidemic of self-doubt. I AM THAT GIRL exists to transform self-doubt in to self-love. Every day, girls are bombarded with messages that attack what she is NOT and we work every day to help her love who SHE IS; to see that in herself and inspire that in others. We've seen limitless possibility when girls collaborate instead of compete and contribute as much as they consume. By building community for girls to be seen, be heard, be loved and belong, to discover their innate worth, and to embrace and celebrate who they are, we will transform their lives and create a healthier, more powerful world. Our local + digital community, premium, curated and user generated content, and targeted education-based programs all address the emotional, mental and physical well-being of girls. COMMUNITY: We build online and offline community to give girls a safe space to DISCOVER, BE and EXPRESS who she is. CONTENT: Media is the most powerful tool to influence how a girl defines herself. We CREATE, CURATE, and ADVOCATE for premium and user-generated content for various distribution channels to inspire healthy conversations and honest perspectives. EDUCATION: We are providing tangible tools and resources with an interactive curriculum to teach girls emotional intelligence, professional skills and personal development.

Contact | Website

Scripps Climate Justice seeks to foster mindful action within the Scripps community on the issue of global climate change.

The practices of the fossil fuel industry directly contribute to increasingly common and damaging climate disasters and disproportionately affect low income and minority communities through pollution, toxic waste dumping, and dangerous working conditions. With these pressing issues in mind, we hope to build connections to those within the local community who suffer most from the adverse effects of the fossil fuel industry and use our positions of power as college students at wealthy institutions to encourage the school administrations to divest from fossil fuels. This movement is about challenging the entrenched power dynamics of the fossil fuel industry's political and economic stranglehold on our government and society.
