The Equity and Advocacy Committee encourages you to be a part of the upcoming Critical Conversation: Let’s Talk About Racism and Antiracism, Thursday, March 25th from 5-7 pm, online via Zoom. Registrants will be provided with the Zoom link after RSVP’ing.

Hear from students, staff, and faculty about their experiences being a part of School of Education communities. A group of panelists will share stories and personal experiences as a way to respond to the following questions:

  • How can we listen to and support students within the college and communities who have been subjected to systemic silence?
  • What does it mean to be heard?
  • What are the responsibilities as faculty/staff?
  • How can students ensure their voices are heard on campuses and within communities?
  • How can there be stronger collective action?

Participants will also engage in small group discussions in breakout groups.

Panelists include:

  • Liane Matti – graduate student in the Childhood Special Education program
  • Shikari Clayton-Hall – graduate student in the Counseling program
  • Vernetta Crowner-Deshommes – graduate student in Educational Leadership program
  • Justin Gerald – doctoral student in the Instructional Leadership program
  • Bonnie Veronico – Administrative Advisor, Hunter College alumni, and doctoral student

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Gess Leblanc – a faculty member in the Department of Educational Foundations and Counseling Programs.

This critical conversation is part of the School of Education’s ongoing commitment to address racism and strengthens the efforts to move toward antiracist practices.
