The LOVE program developed a concept for a H.E.A.L.T.H. Lab (Health, Equity, Access, Literacy, Transformational, Hope) for the Arcadia community, and created the Instagram @HumansofHealthEquity page to bring the stories of health inequity to life as a way to increase awareness and inspire change.
LOVE did a deep dive into the history of the land and original ownership of Arcadia’s main campus. Proposals include: Update Arcadia Tour Script to include history of Cremona Morrey and add an art installation commemorating history of Arcadia Main Campus to bring more visibility to this history.
LOVE examined ways that access to sports limits equity within sports and proposed an equipment drive for the spring.
LOVE developed an informational brochure to inform the community about how workplace discrimination occurs, and how it can be spotted, interrupted and reported; the program also presented a scenario to bring the brochure information to life.
Open House attendees got to see a chilling display of the size and layout of a solitary confinement cell. This group conducted a letter-writing campaign on behalf of a man who has been assigned to solitary confinement for nearly four years for an infraction he didn’t commit. They also researched the inequities of the cash bail system and explored political pathways to ending it.
Using a storytelling process, this group explored the question, “What racially untrue truths did you learn in school?” Participants proposed revised curriculum to reflect the historical truth of marginalized communities (e.g., the Thanksgiving Myth), and to introduce awareness and understanding of race in early childhood education.
