Building Bridges Across Communities
Feb 15, 2020 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
In this time of social and political uncertainty, join this safe space dedicated to empowering and uplifting communities by strengthening our knowledge and understanding of each other. This interactive workshop takes attendees through the experiences of those impacted by, and working with, disenfranchised communities. Discussion topics include the refugee resettlement landscape, refugee and immigrant storytelling, antisemitism, LGBTQ, Islamophobia, and anti-Blackness.
Led by experience organizers, graduate students, faculty and staff from departments throughout the University, the workshop is designed to provide a learning space to harness the power of different movements to improve general anti-discrimination efforts. Learn about the struggles of these communities and how you can take action during this important year.
