About Multicultural Affairs Social Justice Forums
Several Social Justice Forums were held during the summer and fall of 2020. The forums presented various themes that included the intersectionality of Race within women's, immigrants', LGBTQ+, mental health, and disability rights. The forums also focused on racial injustice, education inequity, and criminal justice and policing.
The forums were inspired shortly after the tragic death of George Floyd, which sparked massive protests across the country. The forums' outlook is to bring awareness to social inequities, create positive change and develop solutions to the barriers that exist in our country for marginalized groups.
The end goal is to build a viable community of partnerships in the spirit of social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion work (DEI).
