Latinx Student Union

Latinx Student Union (LSU) is dedicated to providing a network of support and services for Latinx/Hispanic-identifying Reedies. LSU is here to recognize and vocalize the challenges of being a cultural minority at Reed (the Latinx identity encompasses all races, including Afro-Latinxs and Asian Latinxs), and how Latinx/Hispanic identities intersect with other salient issues like those relating to class, gender, language, family, and culture. Our group is dedicated to being a resource for Latinx Reedies, as well as promoting multiculturalism for the greater Reed community. We recognize that within our own community, certain members experience greater privileges than others; this can be due to colorism, classism, and anti-blackness. One of our goals this year is to address intersectionality and privileges within our own community. Moreover, we want to combat racism and xenophobia. Programming will include activists, artists, and speakers, in addition to community dinners and trips to Latinx-owned businesses.

Liberation Literacy @ Reed

Liberation Literacy is committed to building social justice literacy in prisons in order to re-imagine and re-articulate the relationship between incarceration, our community and ourselves. We participate in a weekly reading group at CRCI and will be having a Reed carpool network to the meetings.

From the website: How we started:

One of the many racist legacies of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 was its elimination of Pell Grants for prisoners, which dismantled prison education programs. As a means of providing a space where the appalling history of American racial capitalism could be discussed, Liberation Literacy began as a Black History Study Group with inside students at Columbia River Correctional Institution (CRCI) in Portland, Oregon. We then established a donation-based Freedom Library with books about social justice and the African diaspora. In Fall 2016, at the suggestion of longtime participant Joshua Wright we initiated our first community reading group at CRCI which meets weekly and is comprised of around thirty inside/outside students. With the help of the community and particularly students at Catlin Gabel High School, the library is now home to nearly 500 books, which are checked out weekly to our reading group and may also be requested on an individual basis by other prisoners at the institution.

Our Vision:

We are students of revolutionary politics that have long been forgotten - the Toussaint L'Ouvertures, the Harriet Tubmans, the Assata Shakurs, and the Malcolm X’s, who all recognized the systemic injustice in our country and saw themselves as active agents in fighting for change. We believe Portland and the rest of America is in dire need of becoming more relational, building radical community and pursuing deep healing and repentance. We believe that we, and everyone reading this, can and should join this legacy of humanity and justice.

Minorities and Philosophy

The MAP chapter at Reed College aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. MAP at Reed collaborates with the Philosophical Society to address (a) minority issues in the profession, (b) theoretical issues regarding philosophy of gender, race, sexual orientation, class, disability, native language, etc, and (c) philosophy done from minority perspectives.



This academic year, we will hold Q&A meetings for people of color, women, gender nonconforming, and queer students. We will host student presentations from the Philosophical Society on topics such as philosophy of race, feminist epistemology, etc. And we will use departmental, MAP and student body funds to bring speakers to campus with the goal of exposing the greater student body to philosophy done from minority perspectives.

Post-PostKolonial Klub

We want to be an open space for people with histories of colonial oppression to discuss the experience of being postcolonial (and often) diasporic subjects. Although Reed has many identity groups, we feel there isn't a space for reedies who share similar experiences (as a result of colonialism) from many different ethnic backgrounds.Furthermore, there isn't a non-academic space for people to come together and explore what the postcolonial being is; lived, and negotiated constantly through projects of assimilation, neo-colonialism, american imperialism etc.

We want this space to provide the roots for Reedies to find avenues of understanding through music, food, films, festivals, and hopefully a speaker or two who discuss their fractured identities, home, the rooted/lived aftermath of colonization in their work.

Queer Student Union

Queer Student Union strives to serve as a safe space for queer people at Reed. While most would consider Reed a queer haven, this mentality actually further isolates queer people at Reed who wonder why they feel alone and underrepresented or unheard here. Our group discusses serious, fun, and difficult questions related to people of sexual and gender identity minorities while primarily existing as a supportive and open community. We are organizing events that usually queer folx do not get to enjoy and participate in such as Queer Prom and Queer Speed Dating, and see movies and plays that represent queer voices and relationships. We strive to foster intersectional discussion during our weekly meetings while also connecting and joking in a fun, accepting environment.
