WELCOME TO THE ACT ON RACISM WEBPAGE

Act on Racism (AoR) is a small group of Grand Valley State University students founded in 2005. The performance group seeks to find a more creative way to discuss the manifestations of race and racism. 

During a performance, students reenact the true experiences of racism that have affected their lives. Every scene AoR performs is inspired by true events students or people known to the students have experienced.

The performances by AoR incorporate various forms of artistic expressions, including singing, spoken word, and poetry. After each performance, AoR engages the audience in an interactive discussion. The discussion provides an opportunity for audience members to express their thoughts and potentially share any stories that relate to AoR's performance.

AoR is under the mentorship of Dr. Jennifer Stewart, Associate Professor of Sociology.
