Created in response to a student-led racial justice protest held in the spring of 2015, the center exists to cultivate beloved community and is rooted in self-love, intercultural comradery and social justice engagement. In an effort to create a warm, supportive and vibrant home for community members from marginalized locations and their allies, the center is designated for anti-oppression oriented activities and critical consciousness-raising. Any group wishing to use this space must use it for such purposes. The center is home to a social justice-oriented branch of the Allen Ginsberg Library and the many events, groups, and offerings of the Office for Inclusive Community. Located between Upaya South and the Counseling Center, this space is open during all Naropa business hours and welcomes community members to hang out, do homework, and share in the center’s mission.
The Center for Culture, Identity & Social Justice is currently without any smart technology. With the purchasing of a projector, screen, and window coverings, the cultural center will provide community members with the ability to screen films, host presentations and engage in a variety of collaborative projects.
