This panel will include a series of questions for the participants to share their work and educate the audience on the different approaches to supporting and empowering this marginalized community.

About University Studies’ Race and Social Justice Dialogues. During the summer of 2016, University Studies faculty met to express a sincere interest in establishing courageous conversations among colleagues, on campus, and in UNST courses about race, violence, and social justice. University Studies is committed to fighting social oppression through its Diversity, Equity, and Social Justice learning goal: "Students will explore and analyze identify, power relationships, and social justice in historical contexts and contemporary settings from multiple perspectives." Bringing Theory to Practice provided seed funds (2016-2019) for starting the Dialogues.
