  15. Our Money & the Financing of Racial (In)Justice | Centennial Lecture Series Our Money & the Financing of Racial (In)Justice | Centennial Lecture Series

    November 9, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

    We use public money—increasingly in the form of debt—to pay for the services and resources that society needs. Cities and local governments use debt to finance everything from housing and property development, education, and transportation to settling lawsuits in cases of police brutality. Yet the debts that local governments borrow on behalf of their residents have been used to finance racial segregation and White wealth accumulation. Akin to credit scores used by lenders to determine how expensive it is for individual people to borrow money, lenders rate cities with implications for the costs of investing in local communities. For example, when White property is perceived threatened by protests against racial injustice, lenders can ascribe lower ratings to cities and make it more expensive for local governments to finance the services and resources that communities need. These types of financial calculations determine whether and how racialized communities experience marginalization, vulnerability, and abundance.

    This panel conversation with Tamara K. Nopper, Destin Jenkins, and Lua Kamál Yuille considers how public money, and debt in particular, is used to finance racial injustice. We also consider how public money can be used to advance racial justice and to invest generously in the services and resources that communities need. Individually and collectively, these scholars’ deep expertise and extensive works offer compelling reasons to understand the relationships between money

    November 11, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    Anti-Asian American sentiment has spread across the U.S. like an epidemic, rising approximately 360% in 2021 alone. Discriminatory rhetoric used by politicians to describe the pandemic polarized the country and put Asian Americans at risk. However, is Anti-Asian hate truly a new phenomena? What is the history of racism against Asian Americans in this country? And how does it connect to the present discrimination we see? How has this community persevered, with the help of other BIPOC communities, to be strong while they continue to contribute to the fabric of American society? Join us for a lecture connecting the past to the present, and hear about the work of prominent Asian American leaders, activists, and students. Featuring LSA of American Studies Lecturer, writer and author, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang; students from the School of Social Work’s API Coalition; former Assistant Attorney General of Michigan and Executive Director of American Citizens for Justice, Roland Hwang; and MSU Law adjunct faculty and Executive Director of Street Democracy, Jayesh Patel.

    There is an insufficient supply of decent affordable housing to meet today's needs. The price of housing continues to increase beyond the reach of many households. Especially hard hit are low-wage earners who do not earn enough income to rent an average priced apartment, and as more and more gentrification occurs, are forced to commute until they find affordability. How does one use affordable housing to rebuild distressed neighborhoods, design communities of opportunity, generate equitable environments, create a strong sense of belonging and hope for the children's future?

  35. Undoing Racism Workshop Meeting

    November 18, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at the individual, school, and structural levels.

    This workgroup was established in 2019 after students, staff, and faculty took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism© workshops. Since then, the Undoing Racism workgroup has been working to implement the People’s Institute anti-racist community organizing model – recognizing that community organizing within our school is critical to move toward an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program to bring along all members of the community.

    The Undoing Racism workgroup also emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures that benefit and maintain power for white people. Our work has largely been focused on building collective community – a fundamental step in the People’s Institute organizing model. Our dialogue and strategic planning to advance towards an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program and school community must begin with building relationships and strengthening community bonds to engage in internal and external anti-racism work.

    Meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month from 12-2pm (with some exceptions). All members of our school community are invited to attend.

    A Zoom link will be sent out the day of the event to all those who RSVP.
