How can we nurture our commitment to faith and radical hope in the face of racism, grief, and loss? How can we cultivate a community grounded in restorative justice, liberatory education, and racial equity? How can we find power and resilience through radical printmaking, documentary fiction, and authentic storytelling?
Join the University YMCA and Diversity & Social Justice Education for our Spring 2022 Friday Forum + Conversation Café, where we will hear responses to these questions from community leaders, scholars, creatives, and leading voices in the fight for racial and social justice.
All presentations are on Fridays at 12 PM followed by a conversation with DiversityEd Staff at 1 PM.
