With a recognition of the pressing need for (concrete) anti-racist initiatives and discourse surrounding race, and racism within Munich's academic institutions, as well as Germany’s public sphere, a team of 7 students came together to found the non-profit and non-governmental organization, "ARCC," in 2021.
ARCC is also a recognised Student University Group "Hochschulgruppe" at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU). ︎︎︎
Mission + Vision
At the core of ARCC lies an unyielding belief that every individual, irrespective of their inherent or assigned traits such as race, ethnicity, culture, nationality, language, gender, religion, worldview, sexual orientation, age, disability, physical attributes, educational background, or social standing, possesses an inalienable right to live a life free from discrimination and prejudice.
We also strongly advocate for a diversification of the (white) socio-cultural paradigm, with a sincere commitment to respecting, acknowledging, and representing those who have been historically marginalized due to their race.
As the embodiment of our name, ARCC endeavors to amplify the voices of the underrepresented and the discriminated against, fostering a sense of community and togetherness through art and cultural events that celebrate diversity and encourage cross-cultural interaction.
