The Barriers to Communicating Across Identities: Addressing Unconscious Bias

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Earl Lewis Room, 3rd Floor, Rackham Building

A workshop lead by Alex Klime, M.S.W. Candidate and National Community Scholar.

We make assumptions all the time; it's a natural part of life. At the same time, we must also work to critically understand these assumptions, and leave space for people who do not fit the narratives we have been socialized to "know." In this workshop we will seek to dialogue with one another and explore solutions.

CANCELLED: Working for Social Change: A Conversation and Workshop on Activism with Mariame Kaba

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

Common Room, Lower Level, Rackham Building

The election of Donald Trump has catalyzed historic levels of activism around the country. The Women's March on the day after the inauguration in 2017 is considered to be the largest single day demonstration ever. However, students have been organizing in large numbers, notably after the killing of Trayvon Martin, which catalyzed the Black Lives Matter movement. In this workshop, educator and organizer Mariame Kaba will illuminate the long history of activism for change, especially that with youth at the center.
