2018 mid-term elections saw a record number of voters turn out to change the
face of politics with the historic inclusion of more women and People of Color
from the local to the federal levels. Join RACE TALKS as we kick off our
9th year anniversary with a call to get involved in activism. Meet staffers of
community-based organizations and elected officials to learn how to engage
their offices and make our democratic process work better for YOU. From the
community, city, metropolitan, state and federal sectors, staffers will share:
will be no formal small group discussions. After each speaker gives brief
remarks and following the Question/Answer session, audience members will be
given time to visit each speaker's table.
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.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
