Dr. Barbara Gaba, President of ACCC, has doubled down on her demand for segregating employee meetings at her college.
Gaba sent an email to all Atlantic Cape Community College employees justifying separate, race-based meetings.
“Our intentions to offer a safe space for our employees of color, based on the survey results, may have been misunderstood”
So-called ‘coaches’ will meet with Gaba’s cabinet, faculty and the college’s controversial Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committees.
Gaba wants more activities that support the college’s so-called ‘Equity Plan’.

Online Comment: What exactly is a safe space for employees of color? A place where they are “safe” from having to present ideas and persuade people of other races or ethnic backgrounds who may disagree with them?
