The Computer Science Department at City College of San Francisco stands in solidarity with people of color who are being targeted by acts of hatred and violence. We stand with the Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities being targeted by police violence. We stand with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community being targeted by violent hate crimes.
We wish to create space for students experiencing frustration and grief at this time. We support efforts to end the continued racial and intersectional oppression against members of communities of color.
To members of our college community looking for ways to get involved or looking for ways to heal, we offer the following resources:
- Responding to Police Brutality and Community Trauma with Resources Beyond 911 (Community Health Resource Center)
- San Francisco Department of Police Accountability
- Don't Call the Police - San Francisco
- Campaign Zero (solutions page)
- The Asian Pacific American Student Success Program (APASS) at CCSF
- Help Against Hate (San Francisco Human Rights Commission)
- The AAPI COVID-19 Project (which includes its own resources page)
- Stop AAPI Hate
We welcome suggestions for other ways we can help at this time. Please direct suggestions to the Department Chair, Jonathan Potter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Whether you are a new college student, a returning student looking to start a new career, or a seasoned tech professional looking to update your skills, we can help you position yourself to apply your knowledge of computing to whichever societal problems interest you most.
