Reflective Discussion

Responding to Hate Within Our Communities Sponsored by University of Pittsburgh
Friday, March 29, 12:15 – 1:30 pm
RSVP required via conference registration; lunch available 11:30 am – 12:15 pm

Join colleagues for a reflective discussion to honor the victims of hate crimes and to engage in action-oriented dialogue on how students, educators, and institutions of higher education are responding to acts of hatred and racial violence. Members of the Pittsburgh higher education community will share campus and community reflections and responses to the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting as we seek to strengthen alliances across differences to eliminate racism and hatred from our society.
