Responding to Hate: Current Opportunities and Future Possibilities

Join us for this follow-up conversation to the Teach-in on Nov. 7 on the current state of the nation. From the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, to the Travel Ban and fears of the “migrant caravan” heading to the U.S. border, to recent fears over pipe bombs sent through the mail, challenges to transgender rights, and news of the massacre of Maurice Stallard and Vickie Jones in Kentucky and eleven members of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, the nation faces significant instability. The rise or emboldenment of white supremacy and white nationalism underlies all of these events and yet these sentiments and fears are nothing new. This two part series of community conversations will address the origins and context of this resurgence or emergence of violent and overt white supremacy and more subtle restrictions on American identity, as well as opportunities to explore and engage ways to counter such movements and ideologies on our campus and in the broader Baltimore and American communities. This second event will feature student leaders, staff, and community partners and conversation about present possibilities and future opportunities for action in the Goucher and Baltimore communities.

This conversation series is made possible by the Rosanna Caonnon Arsht '35 Professorship for Ethics and Leadership and in cooperation with the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, Arsht Center for Community Based Learning and the Center for Race, Equity, and Inclusion.
