PASADENA, California– Affinity groups in Mayfield are a safe place offered to people with shared identities as a way to discuss and learn in a supportive environment. Ms. Amber Gravely, Mayfield’s new Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Director presented the affinity groups for the year, alongside the representatives of each group. The groups offered this year include the following: AAPI(Asian American & Pacific Islander), BSU(Black Student Union), Indigenous People, Forming Allies, Latiné, M&M’s(Mixed and Multiracial), and SPAM(Society of Philippine Americans at Mayfield). If you would like to start another affinity group, please feel welcome contact Ms. Ortega or Ms. Gravely! The affinity groups’ affinity spaces will be held on October 6, 2022, so make sure to stop by and check them out!
