Coping with Despair and Strategizing for Justice: A Process and Action Workshop

Dr. Anu Taranath

Wednesday, March 8, 2017 - 3:30pm to 5:30pm
Intellectual House

Many of us invested in social justice are reeling from the daily dispatches of intolerance on our campus, in our communities and throughout our nation. We might feel indignant and outraged. Based on our various identities, we might also feel targeted and vulnerable. It’s difficult to process all that is happening, isn’t it?

Please join us for a frank discussion about these complicated times. We’ll discuss how we might better navigate both our anxieties as well as resolve for a more equitable future. We’ll also talk about the different strategies, skills and tools we’ll need to use at different moments with ourselves and each other. Our collective vision of a world without racism, xenophobia, homophobia and sexism is more critical than ever.

“Let’s come together in the spirit of justice to unpack this moment and help steer our way forward.”
