Location: Atrium, Stamp Student Union
We are imagining how to respond individually and collectively to everyday situations and emergent incidents. In a moment of so many injustices, are you, like us, trying to figure out how to do your part?
In fights for social justice:
- Are you disrupting?
- Are taking care of those most affected?
- Are you a storyteller?
- Are you an activist?
- Are you not sure what to do in the face of prejudice?
- Are you struggling to have hope?
Hope, Healing, and Mobilizing Against Hate seeks to build a diverse community of TerrapinSTRONG Terps who are interested in expanding their capacity to address incidents of bias and hate, in collaborative, thoughtful, and sustaining ways.
In honor of Black History Month, please come together in community with students from all across campus as we think about the various ways we can respond to hate, bias, and bigotry as formal and informal leaders in our lives. We will be exploring trauma healing practices, engaging in conversations and cultivating joy.
Engaging Speakers: Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington and Dr. Deepa Iyer.
This special event is an all day leadership training for UMD students on Friday, February 16, 9am-3:30pm, breakfast, lunch, and more provided.
Co-sponsored by the Anti-Black Racism Initiative, the School of Public Health, and the Division of Student Affairs.
