March 18, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Join us for our March meeting to build community collaboration and continue the conversation about anti-racist practice and actions.
Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at individual, school and structural levels. This workgroup was established in 2019 after the community took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism workshops, and builds on their anti-racist community organizing model. Our work has been largely focused on building collective community and emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures.
We know there are many important efforts going on at SSW; Undoing Racism will amplify all these efforts, including the advocacy sparked by MSW and Doctoral students. No matter what role you play here at SSW, you are always welcome and encouraged to come to Undoing Racism meetings.
March 18, 2021 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm
Join the Jewish Communal Leadership Program (JCLP) for a panel discussion about the transformative potential of interfaith work.
In the wake of a year shaped by a global pandemic, protests for racial justice, extreme political polarization, and more, so many in and outside the Jewish community are facing personal crises and family tragedies. Through it all, we have seen communities respond to those in need by forming and expanding mutual aid networks, advocating for comprehensive safety protocols and transparency, highlighting inequalities, and finding ways to stay connected in the midst of so much physical isolation. Faith-based and interfaith organizations have been uniquely positioned to offer support in this time.
We are so excited to explore this subject with five distinguished interfaith professionals:
Executive Director of NewGround: A Muslim Jewish Partnership for Change
Reverend Amanda Henderson
Director of the Institute of Religion, Politics & Culture at the Iliff School of Theology, Former Executive Director of the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado
