CAN/DID: What Is Black Lives Matter? | De Anza College

CAN/DID: Standing Against Racism and Injustice

CAN/DID is an ongoing multimedia series that explores equity and social justice issues – including lessons we can all learn from the struggles of different groups and individuals – by drawing on the knowledge and experience of De Anza College students, faculty and classified professionals.

The CAN/DID Inclusion Series is produced by the De Anza College Office of Communications, in consultation with the Office of Equity, Social Justice and Multicultural Education.

About the name: “Can” represents the opportunity for action and positive progress. “Did” acknowledges the history – good and bad – that we are building on. And “candid” means open and honest, which the series is intended to be.
