Event Description

Most of us probably fall in the camp of nonracists. Nonracists do their best not to intentionally participate in overt displays of racism. And that’s good, but not good enough.

If we want to be a part of achieving racial equity in our society, we need to become antiracists. And the first thing an antiracist must do is push themselves to unlearn and unpack all the unconscious, toxic, and deeply held beliefs we all have about race.

Join Diversity Advocacy for discussion surrounding relevant diversity and social justice topics. Lunch will be provided with a vegetarian option available. Please contact Violet Benn at tnbenn@IllinoisState.edu or (309) 438-5818 with any additional dietary needs.

 

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
