Critical Mixed Race Studies

Learn more about your impact

Your gifts support the Critical Mixed Race Studies Association, an international collective of scholars, artists, activists, students, clinicians and community organizers whose work analyzes and critiques social, cultural and political institutions based on dominant conceptions of race.

Your gifts provide opportunity for ASU and the larger Arizona community to learn from and engage with participants who are addressing our changing demographics and creating dialogue and actions that speak to our collective humanity and diversity of experience. When you give, you support social justice work, including scholarship, teaching, advocacy, the arts and activism that work to undo injustice rooted in systems of racism and monoracism, which privileges single-race identity.
