Dr. Eva Silvestre leads the Dean’s Task Force on Race, which includes members drawn from students, faculty, and staff.
As some of you have heard, faculty at other institutions are organizing a #ScholarStrike for racial justice Tuesday, September 8th and Wednesday, September 9th, 2020. This was inspired by the NBA, WNBA, and MLB players strike after the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.

One part of this is having teach-ins. The organizers and other collaborators will be producing videos and other materials through YouTube and the links above. This is a crammed and stressful semester but here are some suggestions if you would like to take part:
