"We Can't Breathe": Building Understanding at a Time of Crisis and Change in American Society

A virtual conversation hosted by the Dialogue Zone

Monday, July 6, 2020

2:00-3:30 PM

Join faculty, staff, and students for a conversation on recent events in our country relating to race and the effort to eliminate racism in American society. In this program, participants will have an opportunity to engage in conversation with all participants, as well as to opt into smaller groups for a time for conversation within particular social identity groups to explore these events. The goal of this program is to provide a space for people who have been affected by these trying events to build understanding, including with others who identify similarly in terms of race and/or ethnicity. The program will use a caucus structure for organizing the conversation.  Participants will be asked to share upon registration with what racial/ethnic group they would like to caucus. After a brief introduction in the main group of participants, participants will break into their chosen caucus groups. There will be some time at the end for all participants to come back together and share reflections and insights.

Please register for this conversation at this link. After you register, you will receive an email with instructions for how to join the call, as well as a request for which group you would like to caucus during the program.
