How do we understand race in contemporary America, not only in light of the violence that has (finally) caught national headlines, but in terms of our own communities? What can 'change-making' or political action look like in our own neighborhood and local institutions? And how do we understand our own participation in relation to larger movements that are focused on racially-motivated violence, police brutality, and widespread social injustice? This panel of community leaders and experts from the region will address these questions with an emphasis on practical activity and student involvement. Speakers will include Quintin Cross, SBK Hudson; Joan Hunt, Promised Neighborhoods; Mariel Fiori, La Voz; Alexandra Cox, SUNY New Paltz; and Callie Jayne, Citizen Action of New York. Co-sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement.
