Description

The subject of this town hall is Understanding Anti-Racism in a Pandemic: UNLV Campus Community. Presenters will examine ways in which structural racism has further marginalized and disadvantaged people from a myriad of identity groups. Participants will also discuss a path forward to address these inequities within the UNLV campus community.

“Hate Uncycled: What’s on your mind?” is a series of campus conversations showcasing how UNLV and its students, faculty, staff and alumni are engaging with and responding to some of today’s most pressing issues. The series will cover a range of topics, including the effects of racism on public health, indigenous and land justice, and the First Amendment and policing. The series is organized by the College of Liberal Arts and the offices of the Executive Vice President and Provost, Diversity Initiatives, and Student Diversity and Social Justice in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League and the Interfaith Council of Southern Nevada.
