Diverse Perspectives within Racial Justice Presentation: Today

Please join President Conway-Turner and the Civic and Community Engagement Office today, November 9, at 12:30 p.m. for a conversation with Kirby Briggs of Kirby's Korner and Alex Burgos of the MOCHA Center about various voices within BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). Diversity is not just superficially satisfied by having conversations about race; there are various voices and statues within those who have been racially oppressed that need to be shared. Ms. Briggs will discuss perspectives within the differently abled community and her lived experiences as a child of color who has different physical abilities. Mr. Burgos will discuss his dual identities and lived experiences as a member of the Latino community, the LGBTQ+ community, and his work in the community.

If you didn't register for Bengals Dare to Care, you can do so now and join us on the CCE's Facebook Livestream beginning at 12:30 p.m. to attend this conversation.

The CCE also encourages you to dive deeper into some of the engagement materials curated on the topic of voting, civil rights, and racial justice and to complete one of the Take Action opportunities. Engagement materials and Take Action resources are available on the Bengals Dare to Care website under Week Three.
