Our nation, our university, and our department have faced recent as well as historic challenges in incorporating people of color as fully enfranchised members of these respective communities. Join us for meaningful dialogue as we consider how faculty, students, and administrators might work together to promote a more democratic, inclusive, and just society. Refreshments will be served.
In light of recent incidents of discrimination towards Asian and Asian Pacific Islander American students on campus, we hope to open a dialogue around APIA issues at OSU and in the broader community.
We will be having an organizing meeting on Tuesday, May 8 at 6pm to begin the conversation. Location to follow.
This will be a first step to share and listen to others’ experiences and concerns, where we can discuss how we can work together to address these as well as ways we can create social change on campus and build wider connections with the Columbus area community.
Please announce this to any and all who may be interested in attending.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kim McKee (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Annabelle Estera (email@example.com)
