Where to Start

Listen and Learn

Within the process of reconciliation, the ability to listen is an essential skill. Racism is an intense and a deeply complex issue. So often our assumptions of others and of their experiences can prohibit us from learning about their experiences with prejudice and systematic racism. The first step in the process is to slow down and learn to listen to those around you.

Attend our events

Throughout the year, Solidarity Cabinet hosts various events that seek to educate and engage the issues within systematic racism while also providing a place to connect for those who are passionate about racial reconciliation.

With our programming we seek:

  • To host events that will connect both students and faculty with others who are committed to the issue of racial reconciliation and who will continue to keep the conversation going on campus.
  • To host events that will create an awareness of current issues while also engaging in the complexities of the history of racism within our society.
