A social justice coffee hour for students, faculty and staff will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 19, in the lounge of Louis Redding Hall.
The program will focus on intersectional identities, a concept that concerns membership in multiple disadvantaged groups.
Three speakers will give informal, 10-15-minute talks, followed by small group discussions and a call to action. Coffee and light refreshments will be served.
Speakers will be Karla Bell, assistant professor of physical therapy, undergraduate student Taylor Matthews, and Hayat Omar, a local activist. Download the pdf here.
The coffee hour is the first of what is planned to be a recurring event. For more information, visit the diversity-focused Facebook group We Stand United.
The event is sponsored by UD’s Center for the Study of Diversity, LGBT Program, Office of Equity and Inclusion, and LGBTQ+ and Racial Justice Living Learning Community; the registered student organizations HOLA and SpeQtrum; We Stand United; and Brewed Awakenings.
