Social Justice & Intercultural Center

Post

The Social Justice Inter-Cultural Center (SJIC) is a space designed to house an array of equity-rooted programs and services, and provide a space where students can access resources, research, work, and organize around issues related to social justice and/or equity.

Our goal is to support the mission of Long Beach City College through works of equity and advocacy. Alongside campus and community partners students will leave the center able to build community, live in solidarity equipped with the tool to create a just campus for all.
