Lunch Series: A Chat to Counter Oppression:  Doing Race & Undoing Racism in the Dismantling of Inequities in Higher Education

Facilitators:  CAFE Consultants: Erica Brown-Meredith, Assistant Professor of Social Work; Evan Long, Assistant Professor and Coordinator, Education

3rd Friday of the month @ 12:05-12:55 via Zoom.  September 18, October 16, November 20

*Attend as many as you are able.

Eat your lunch and have a safe space to reflect on current events, learn what others are doing in higher education to build a more equitable classroom, and discover ways that you can help build collective capacity.  The purpose of the monthly chat is to stop and learn about race and racism in the United States during this critical time in history.  The mission of the group is to increase awareness and understanding of racial bias and structural racism.  Since racism is a system of oppression, it is the intent of the organizers to problematize racism systematically.  The chat will use a critical race theoretical framework that is rooted in social justice while deconstructing educational disparities related to equity in higher education.​ All individuals regardless of current comfort level or competence in racial equity are encouraged to attend. 

Please go to to register.  Participants will receive a Zoom link the morning of the session
