Different together: Can we make it happen? (Webinar)
June 11, 2020 at 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Please join us for a conversation inspired by the global anti-racism protests and BC’s #DifferentTogether pledge
The events of the past couple of weeks have brought into light the pervasiveness of anti-Black racism, and inspired strong waves of activism for a just society. This is a moment of historic change. Here in Canada and around the world we are witnessing powerful movements against racism. This forum brings us together to share our thoughts about this time and the potential for shaping our collective futures at UBC and beyond. Centering the voices of students and impacted community members, the forum gives us a window into the grief and the liberating potential of this moment.
The event will open with remarks from The Honourable Janet Austin, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. She has recently launched the #DifferentTogether pledge on Twitter, a pledge from which we have drawn inspiration for this event. We will follow with remarks from four panelists, after which the floor will be opened for questions and discussion.
