Organization description

Reedies Against Racism (RAR)

Our mission is to resist racism and anti-blackness at our school and in the greater Portland community, while always remembering to remain intersectional and prioritize the most marginalized members of our communities. Our current project is ending Reed's contract with Wells Fargo as its operating bank. We meet with tentative regularity on Thursdays at 5:30 in the Infoshop (GCC basement). We also tend to meet on Sunday evenings in preparation for the week.

Reed's only rugby club! an older reed tradition / sport, coached by a reed alum, where you're only allowed to throw the ball backwards. aside from the actual (weird) rules of the sport, reed rugby aims to create a diverse, inclusive and fun environment for people to learn new skills, exercise, and build community. We welcome any and all skill levels and would love to see you on Wednesdays (4-6) and Sundays (12-2) on the rugby field (west of Naito).

SYNERGY

Synergy is Reed's longest running campus booking organization. Since 2014 we have brought over fifty artists, many of whom are some of the most exciting voices at the forefront of underground music, to perform at Reed. These include Noname (Chance the Rapper collaborator), Elysia Crampton (who performed her live A/V piece Dissolution Of The Sovereign: A Time Slide Into The Future), DJ Spinn + Teklife CREW, RP Boo (#1 dance track of 2015, SPIN), NGUZUNGUZU (who DJed the VMAs months after), Vektroid (aka macintosh plus, founder of Vaporwave), Skylar Spence, Lil B the Based God, and many others. Over the years we have cultivated a vibe at Synergy shows that is not only unheard of at most colleges, but unheard of in Portland at large due to many barriers to entry (especially for underaged people) in the local music scene. We focus on booking and supporting artists of color and queer artists of color as we believe this is the most responsible use of booking funds at Reed. Your top 6 vote could help bring life-changing shows to campus.

Safety Kollective

You are valuable! This club will exist for the express purpose of helping keep Reedies safe on the personal level. Through Safety Kollectiv, we hope to be able to provide means of protection for our fellow students, and with significant priority to the members of our community that are low-SES, trans, PoC, differently abled, and femme.

We aim to engage in discussions on personal safety for these groups, provide non-lethal self-defense objects, such as pepper spray or keychain knuckles, as well as more proactive defense training, such as inviting themed self defense or preventative safety instructors, as well as training Reedies in gun safety and going on sponsored trips to gun ranges.

Soap-making Club

We are a group of Reedies interested in making soap! We will create many types of soap over the course of the year. If permitted by safety regulations, we'll use the cold process method, which means we'll be making our soap from scratch! Soap-making is a craft at the intersection of art and science. We'll design our soap, then watch chemical reactions occur between the ingredients we've chosen. We will scent our soaps with essential oils and color them using pigments derived directly from nature. Participants will be able to keep some of the soap they make, and the rest will be donated to the Reed Community Pantry or to Portland shelters, so that everyone can meet basic hygiene needs with a piece of art that isn't basic at all (soap pun).

Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP)

We are Reed's chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), an international group dedicated to ending the War on Drugs. At Reed, we mainly focus on providing harm reduction materials on campus, such as testing kits, supplements, fact-based information, tabling at SU balls, naloxone training, trip sitting, and more! Last year we also worked to put the syringe disposals in the GCC bathrooms (if you use any form of syringe, please put them there!), to keep kratom legal, and to pass the Oregon law that moved possession of small quantities of scheduled substances from a felony to a misdemeanor. This year we are hoping to raise money to bail out POC arrested on drug charges in Multnomah and Clackamas counties, bring in speakers to talk about their experiences of the drug war, and more! If you have any suggestions, we'll try to make them happen.

Students of Color Community (SOCC) ((new))

The Students of Color Community aims to continue serving as a safe, healing space for students of color in need of a retreat from the stress of racism in white-dominated social and academic spaces at Reed. We value equitable decision-making, connecting with local communities of color, and affirming individual identities in all of their complexity through sharing and remembering personal stories and collective histories. To make our space most inclusive, we center black and indigenous voices, as well as queer and gender-nonconforming voices. By working to foster community investment in our space among residents and by prioritizing events that return our energy to us rather than sending it out into white spaces, we hope to be a space of rest and sanctuary for students of color.We consider mentorship a necessity and will open to the greater community of students of color at Reed, with particular emphasis on involving first-years.
