Join us for a two-day symposium on hate/bias prevention, response, and healing, built around a social justice framework, in an effort to facilitate and sustain educational/organizational systems that are more safe, equitable, and just.
The event will be held on December 3 & 4 at UW-La Crosse in the Student Union. This year’s theme is Harnessing Radical Hope for Collective Action inspired by Carolina DeRobertis’s book Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times.
The objectives of the symposium:
The primary audience for this symposium is teams or individuals working directly on hate/bias education, prevention, response, and healing within a higher education setting, which typically includes Chief Diversity Officers, Affirmative Action Directors, Counseling staff, LGBT directors, Multicultural Directors, Campus Climate Coordinators, Residence Life stakeholders, Violence Prevention Specialists, University Police, and student activists.
This symposium will also benefit higher education faculty/staff/administrators who understand this work is bigger than one person or any team, anti-racist and social justice-centered K-12 educators, businesses/organizations who care about people, and those who want to do their part to advance inclusivity, equity, and justice within our collective spheres of influence.
