    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?

  5. 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.
