Our Stories Matter: Discussion Series

This discussion series will consist of focused interdisciplinary evidence-based perspectives - at least two at each - presented by CI faculty and/or invited experts who will speak on and discuss specific topics related to fascism, white supremacy, current events (local to global), in the context of CI's stated values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We plan to hold the first speaker series, directly addressing aspects of white supremacy on Wednesday, February 07, 2018 in  BRO 1320 from 5:30pm to 7:30PM. We will continue them on the first Wednesday of the month to develop a regular community discussion of pressing and divisive issues. Possible discussion topics include fake news, intersectionality, DACA and immigration, free speech and democracy. 

The series will take place from 5:30pm to 7:30pm in BRO 1320 on the following dates:
