#BlackLivesMatter: Let's Talk
June 2, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Save for Later
During this unprecedented time of battling the new COVID-19 virus, we are simultaneously combating age-old systemic racism in the form of police brutality. Both have negatively impacted communities of color, and particularly our Black communities, and their legacies for centuries and decades. Both have also led to the most recent protests and outcries we see erupting from coast to coast over the last several days.
GO-MAP is deeply concerned about our GO-MAP family and wants you to have a space where you can talk openly and freely about the recent turn of events in a safe virtual space. Please join us in sharing your feelings and concerns and choose whatever cultural expressions that suit you best.
We will be hosting two discussions for our graduate students tomorrow Tuesday, June 2, 2020 from 12 – 1 PM and offering an extended 30 mins with GO-MAP staff for those that would like to continue the discussion in community. Dr. Carolyn Jackson, GO-MAP Outreach and Recruitment Officer will be facilitating this discussion and Dr. Joy Williamson-Lott, Dean of the Graduate School will be joining in solidarity.
We understand that there are multiple identities that we all share, and we ask that you choose one in this scenario knowing that your solidarity is with all groups and people who are impacted.
