Women have always been at the forefront of the social justice
TIME Magazine recognized as its 2017 Person of the Year women who
spoke up about sexual assault and helped spur what seemed like an overnight
revolution. Even before Tarana Burke helped survivors of sexual violence
actually launch the #MeToo movement in 2006, our speakers were learning to
find their voices: even before her first protest march in
elementary school; even before she found the courage to stop being
trafficked; even before she became the first director of advocacy for
the Latino Network; even before the 2017 Presidential Inauguration.
Women and men everywhere have begun to speak out. Come. Be
inspired. Break the silence..and find your voice, too.

This series deals with race in Oregon, both historically and up to the present time, to provide learning experiences that support the development of racial identity and sensitivity.
Each month, Kennedy School hosts a presentation on a different topic of ethnicity and racial elements in Oregon history, given by educators and/or experts in the topic at hand. The aim is to provide educational and learning experiences that support the development of intercultural sensitivity and racial identity.
