  5. Winter Semester Community Conversation  »

    November 11, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

    We invite you to a conversation with students about the winter semester. The School is seeking opportunities to hear from you about how we can organize our winter semester. With so much online, how do we connect with one another? How do we build community? How do we learn from and with each other as we prepare to be practicing social workers? We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear!  If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)

    About the format. A few students and faculty have decided to try something different - smaller community conversations. Our hope is that this can take topics that lend themselves better to verbal dialogue off of email and into a face-to-face (or screen-to-screen!) environment. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.

    November 12, 2020 - 12:00pm

    Food deserts have been purposefully and strategically created, aided by historic redlining and other discriminatory policies and practices that have segregated our Black and Brown communities to impoverished urban areas. These communities lack access to grocery stores and other vendors that provide wholesome, nutritional food, while liquor stores and fast food restaurants are prevalent. Join us in a special virtual discussion featuring prominent Detroit food justice activists and organizers who have taken food sovereignty and environmental empowerment into their own hands. Panelists include Executive Director of the Detroit Black Food Security Network (DBFSN), Malik Yakini, Executive Director of Sustainable Community Farms, Michelle Jackson, and Executive Director of Oakland Avenue Urban Farming and Jerry Hebron, Northend Christian Community Development, INC.

    Attending this session counts for field credit. Please document your attendance and contact your field faculty supervisor for information.
