The University of South Carolina is being criticized by a conservative student organization over a “White Student Accountability Group” meeting that was hosted at the school.
An email sent to University of South Carolina College of Social Work students invited them to attend the “White Student Accountability Group” meeting that was hosted on April 26, according to the conservative student organization Turning Point USA.
According to the event description for the “White Student Accountability Group,” participants would learn about their “responsibility to dismantle racism in our practice and everyday lives.”
“The purpose of engaging in this project is three-fold: 1) To help social work students recognize both their contribution to and responsibility to dismantle racism in our practice and everyday lives, 2) To encourage students to use their voice, power, and privilege to enact change in their classrooms, community, and practice, 3) To support students in developing skills to host similar groups among peers or colleagues to expand the community dedicated to racial equity and justice,” the reported event description states.
