Community conversation about racialized violence to be held on July 13

Tags: deans updates

On Wednesday, July 13, 2016, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in Prechter (room 2202), the School of Education, along the Rackham Graduate School and the Students of Color of Rackham (SCOR), will host a community conversation about the ongoing racialized violence in this country. We will come together to support one another and to discuss the following questions: What can we do to change the systems in our society that discriminate against, target, marginalize, and oppress people on the basis of race? How do we ensure that Black lives really matter? How do we make change in this world in the face of such violence? What can we do to ensure that education prevails over violence?

Please plan to join this conversation if at all possible. We need to come together, talk together, work together, and act together. We must educate each other and our nation if we hope to have a chance at change. Dinner will be available beginning at 5:30 p.m.; watch for an email from Elizabeth Moje about registering for the event.
