Message from the Chair
Greetings everyone and welcome to the AHANA Leadership Council (ALC) at Boston College! This year’s ALC strives to reclaim the power in the legacy of its foundation that fosters a more open campus community and climate for Boston College students. We plan to focus on developing a stronger community among the African, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American and ally students at BC. While remaining proactive advocates and holding the students and administration accountable in order to promote a much needed change for a presence, recognition, and place for AHANA students in terms of race, ethnicity, culture, creed, religion, sexual orientation, disabilities and socioeconomic status. ALC will act as the voice of not only the AHANA community, but the voice of students who wish to have a more diverse and inclusive campus. We will continue to put on traditional legacy events and campaigns, like AHANA celebration Week and the Dress with Respect campaign, and will also expand our programming and advocacy into new areas and ideas. As I end my welcome, I challenge you all to continue to actively work towards implementing programs that enhance our image, mobilization and Social Justice; while promoting membership growth and showcasing our good work, worth and leadership on this campus and in the greater Boston area. We welcome all thoughts and suggestions, so please look out for our events, open meetings, town halls and student polls—we encourage everyone to come! If you have any questions about ALC or are looking for someone to talk to, please feel free to reach out to me!
