Global Movements for Social Justice
October 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm PDT
The past year has forced us to think differently about how our choices directly impact those around us. It challenged our perceptions of safety, risk, and uncertainty. Nevertheless, marginalized, oppressed, and displaced peoples around the globe continue to pursue justice. Join our virtual panel as we discuss the parallels between local, regional, and global voices and movements for social justice. This empowering event will emphasize recognition and dignity; but also acknowledges bias, marginalization, violence, and other limits to identification, association, and mobility.
Dr. Antonio De La Garza will share unique perspectives on the intersection of migration and gender in the US/Mexico borderlands. Henry Edward Frank will share American Indian views from Northern California. Dr. Darren Byler’s expertise on the ongoing struggles for the Uyghur people in Western China will enlighten the audience on how this group of indigenous Chinese continue to pursue dignity in the face of an authoritarian regime.
