Anti-Racism Discussion Group Assignments

This is a list of assignments staff and faculty have discussed in the Anti-Racism Discussion Groups led by Tori Leder. Two groups of over 60 staff and faculty ran during the summer of 2020 and one group continues throughout the fall semester. The summer group ran from June 22,2020 to August 1, 2020. The “offline” assignments were sent out to folks while no groups were hosted. Our fall group starts on September 24th, 2020. This page will be updated monthly with the group’s assignments.

If you are interested in joining a group, please visit our event page to see current offerings or contact Tori Leder at <vleder@lclark.edu>.
