In adapting our practices and policies to the realities of the pandemic, we prioritized safety and well-being in our team interactions and in interactions with our clients. Prioritizing a humanizing space that is committed to resist colonialist and racist assumptions about language, labor, and work ethics shaped our practice. Our group video presentation focuses on exploring the opportunity we had to identify the discursive space we needed to occupy as a writing center within our internal dialogue and our external outreach to campus community.
