Who Are We?
Alumni for Change is a group of 80+ current and former students from Xavier College Preparatory who have all come together around the mission of making Xavier a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable place for all women of excellence. We are graduates of XCP from the 90s to the Class of 2020. We are educators, lawyers, journalists, diversity practitioners, financial analysts, and more. We have years of experience and training in anti-racism, as well as deep personal interests in furthering our journeys of becoming anti-racist ourselves. We want to see Xavier and all schools in the Diocese of Phoenix become better places for students of color - we have faith that this will happen and will work tirelessly to see it come to fruition. We have had dozens of conversations with educational experts, both Catholic and secular, public and private, who have validated our five action items, and we have spent hundreds of hours researching curriculum and professional development to help teachers and students.
