We are proud to announce the roll-out of HSDA's Caucus system! HSDA has struggled with diversity and inclusion in the past, and this year, we hope to make it a priority to ensure that marginalized communities have both a seat at the table and a safe space in HSDA to discuss their concerns and build a community.
What will a caucus do?
Caucuses will meet once every two weeks, and programming will be determined for the caucus chair, in conjunction with the membership of each caucus. Caucuses have blank checks to pursue whatever programming they want, from hosting discussions to taking action on behalf of a candidate, the caucus members can decide what type of programming they want to undertake.
What caucuses are there?
This year, we will be having:
- A Black Caucus
- A Women’s Caucus
- An LGBTQ+ Caucus
- A Latinx Caucus
- A Jewish Caucus
- An Asian/Pacific Islander Caucus
- A Rural Caucus
- A Muslim Caucus
If you are interested in joining any of these caucuses, you can fill out the form here. If you feel that you identify with a community that has not been represented in any of these caucuses, you can fill out the form here to express interest in creating a caucus that is relevant to your identity.
