Day for Learning and Speaking Out

Racial Injustice, Rising and Thriving: Healthy Anti-Racist Activism 

Tuesday, March 23 - Thursday, March 25, 2021 
Online via Zoom
Event schedule

All members of the DU community - faculty, administrators, staff, and students - are invited to participate in DLSO events. 
To register, visit Day for Learning and Speaking Out

Organized by an interdisciplinary group of faculty, staff, and students, the day catalyzes conversations that confront racism as a structural and systemic phenomenon that most affects those marginalized in our society. Each year we begin by looking at racism demonstrated by current events and then reflect on racism and antiracism within our own teaching and learning environment.
