Anti-Racism Community Space Web-Ex Event

The Anti-Racism Community Space is a safe space devoted to building an inclusive community within CECH dedicated to anti-racism. Each month we’ll learn, engage, and listen to one another alongside experts in the community. Open to all members of the CECH community – students, staff, faculty and alumni.

Meetings will be held the second Tuesday of every month via WebEx. November 10th at 3:30 PM via WebEx.

Co-presented by the CECH Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Board and the CECH Library.

November Description: Join CECH’s own Dr. Antar Tichavakunda, Assistant Professor of Education Studies, for an interactive discussion on Critical Race Theory. After a brief primer defining the concept, Dr. Tichavakunda will engage participants in thoughtful conversation about the ways in which we might re-examine current events, our daily lives, and the 2020 “racial awakening” through this essential theoretical perspective.
