Day of Solidarity, Part 2
The Day of Solidarity is for people to get together across campus to learn about the importance of community, how they can support those around them and how they can find support from others. The goal of the session is to create a strong community on campus.
During this session we will look at the history and systems behind issues of policing and minoritized people and communities. We will watch three short videos and discuss how and why calling these issues have come about and how we can deal with difficult situations in constructive and informed ways.
