Commons Conversations Let’s Talk About Race (the original)

June 26th 1:30-3PM

The Vice President of Equity and Inclusion, Noelle Chaddock, invites the Bates Community to a Commons Conversation: Let’s Talk About Race on June 26th 1:30-3PM. As our nation and the global community attempt to navigate three concurrent global pandemics, we find that race, racial disparities and racial violence have intersected, producing a profound if not lethal impact on black, brown and indigenous communities and people. This is an opportunity for campus community members to spend time thinking and talking about what the impact looks like in our Bates Community, our local Lewiston/Auburn community, the nation and our global community. This will also allow us to start framing the overwhelming amount of planning we must do for Fall 2020. An RSVP link will be available early the week of June 22, 2020.
