Freedom of Speech: Hate, Hope and Healing Event

Jan 31, 2022 11:00 AM

Angry, tired, frustrated, scared, disgusted, disappointed, irritated, and confused. Many college students share these feelings as they continue to experience and/or witness the challenges of the pandemic and heightened racial injustice.

On Tuesday, February 1, FSU will host an event which is interactive, engaging, and educational. It provides historical narrative, compelling examples, and thought-provoking dialogue that answers these questions and many more.

The facilitator blends his legal background as an attorney with American history and diversity, equity and inclusion principals to take participants on a journey that increases awareness, knowledge and skills as it relates to social justice and advocacy. He tackles traditionally difficult topics that can be uncomfortable to discuss and transforms them into learning opportunities for growth. He presents the information in an evidence based, non-offensive manner.

Please join the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the University Council for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for these thought provoking and timely workshops.
