Racial equality and the Black Lives Matter movement are issues that are extremely important to the ACYC. To show support for racial equality, the ACYC hosted several fundraisers to help raise money for Black Lives Matter and George Floyd. For every 3 signatures signed on a petition related to Black Lives Matter, ACYC donated $1 to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Several members also posted a Venmo bingo where all the proceeds were given to a charity of their choice. In addition, the ACYC has planned to meet with multiple Arcadia city council members and City Manager Dominic Lazzaretto to discuss possible reforms that the city can undertake. You can find our official statement on Black Lives Matter under the "Statements" sub-tab nested under the "News" tab.
On the week of June 21 to June 27, the Arcadia community found out about the pervasive and criminal culture of sexual assault and harassment at Arcadia High School. We have issued a statement on this matter as well, and are coordinating with fellow students on combatting and highlighting this blight on our community. It can be found in the "Statements" sub-tab.
Every month, the historians will upload a summary detailing the ACYC's many operations, including campaigns, volunteer events, side projects, and other things that come up during the month.
