Date(s) - Wednesday, January 27th, 2021
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join ING on Wednesday, January 27th to learn about the Intercultural Speakers Bureau.

The Intercultural Speakers Bureau (ICSB) addresses and counters racism across racial, ethnic, and religious groups by bringing together a panel of speakers from communities targeted by bigotry in the United States to educate about how racist narratives about marginalized people were formed and framed in history and then embedded in culture institutionally and through implicit biases.

The panel focuses on the shared history and diverse breadth of experiences from the following groups: Muslim Americans, Jewish Americans, Indigenous Peoples, African Americans, Latinx Americans, and Asian Americans. After opening with a discussion on the formation and dissemination of dominant narratives, each panelist speaks about how this has manifested in her or his community and what we can do together to counter racism.

To view live recordings of past intercultural panels, visit our ICSB series on “Solidarity in a Time of Crisis: Standing with Marginalized Communities”, or the ICSB panel we held for the City of San Jose below:
