Fall 2020-Winter 2021: Racialized People and the Color of Democracy Series 

As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, our 2019-20 Speaker Series on Racialized People and the Color of Democracy was unfortunately cut short. However, we have decided to reboot our cancelled Spring 2020 series and invite a few extra guests in the process. These talks will be live via zoom. We’ll post the links here and on our social media closer to each event. Keep an eye on this page for an updated speakers list!
