Creating Inclusive and Equitable Communities-A Call to Action: Understanding the origins and impact of bigotry in the U.S. today and what we can do about it
Despite major advances following the Civil Rights movement, including educational and professional advances, racism and bigotry towards non-Whites continues today. Join us as we examine the roots and interconnectedness of various forms of bigotry, including Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, racism, and xenophobia, that are directed against Muslim Americans, Jewish Americans, Indigenous Peoples, African Americans, Latinx Americans, and Asian Americans. Panelists will address what we want the audience to know about us based on prevailing stereotypes, offer suggestions for interacting effectively with these diverse communities based on the specific needs of the professional group we’re addressing and conclude with calls to action to counter prejudice and hate while building an inclusive society based on mutual understanding and solidarity.
Throughout the event the panelists will entertain questions and have a discussion with the audience.
