UE2020! Student & Alumni Racial Justice Series - Call for Proposals

We invite anyone interested in leading a 60-minute interactive online session/workshop based on your passions and expertise (i.e, art-making as healing and participatory method, discussion of youth organizing during #BLM uprisings, scholar-activism on-the-ground during Covid, or anything you might dream up related to racial justice and your own work in the world) to send us a short proposal. Just write a short paragraph or two—no more than 250-300 words—and submit here via this UE2020! googleform with the focusing question/topic of your session, no later than October 15. Also click all the dates you are available. During this online session you might share the impact of your Urban Ed experiences on your current work, your questions and commitments, and also participate in a discussion focusing on your topic of choice that will be co-moderated by a current student and an alum. If you are an alum, you might connect your then, now and why. If you are a current student, you might share your now, hopes and why. This is a low-stakes “proposal” – most important is that you want to share your voice and work and to talk about it all with others who came before and after you. If we receive more proposals than scheduled sessions, we will either add sessions or will group folx with similar commitments and questions together into a session with a focused topic.
