On Thursday, Oct. 16, the Institute for Justice Education and Transformation will host a discussion entitled “Still Relevant?: Race and Racism in Our Lives” in the Multicultural Student Center. Participants are asked to register.
Recent race-based incidents, such as Mike Brown’s tragic death in Ferguson, remind us that we are far from living in a Post-Racial America. “Still Relevant?: Race and Racism in Our Lives” is a workshop designed to delve into conversation about our experiences with race and racism, the systems that hold racism in place, and the ways that we can push back and confront current racial injustices.
In this workshop, participants will:
– Discuss how race continues to impact our lives;
– Discuss historical resistance to racism;
– Make a personal commitment to working towards racial justice.
