SCRWP exists to promote the cause of anti-racism on Penn's campus, through two primary missions. First, we aim to educate allies about racism and white privilege and provide a space to do difficult internal work on unlearning racism. Second, we aim to further anti-racist action by providing spaces to uplift and support students of color, connecting students with ongoing activism, and building community between students engaging in anti-racism work.
The group was founded by white students for the purpose of confronting their own white privilege. Today, SCRWP is a multiracial coalition of students working to promote anti-racism in ourselves, our schools, and our society.
