Begun in 2015, the Day for Learning and Speaking Out catalyzes conversations between faculty, students, and community stakeholders 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.

The 2016 Day for Learning and Speaking Out will foster reflection on and commitment to responding to structural racism in the criminal justice system. Colleagues interested in topics ranging from policing, to incarceration and restorative justice, to the school to prison pipeline, should plan to attend.
