Discussion Series: Racial Equity, Social Justice & Sustainability
August 4, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until August 25, 2020
AASHE stands in solidarity with the Black community and everyone fighting for racial equality and social justice (RESJ). We recognize that to be silent on issues of injustice of any kind, is to be complicit. We encourage faculty, administrators, staff, and students to start and continue conversations about the role higher education plays in creating and perpetuating racial injustice. We’ve assembled a list of resources related to understanding race, sustainability and anti-racism. This is intended to be a living document so please add to this list of RESJ Resources for the Higher Education Sustainability Community.
During the month of August, AASHE leads a discussion series on August 4, 11 & 18 to talk through how the sustainability community is collaborating to advance RESJ and sustainability. These group discussions, facilitated by sustainability professionals, are guided by these questions:
- How are you making the connection between racial equity and sustainability?
- What additional resources have been helpful to you?
- How are you collaborating with other departments on campus to advance RESJ?
- How do we eliminate the role higher education plays in creating and perpetuating racial injustice?
A recap of this discussion series as well as reflections on moving forward will be offered as a webinar on August 25 at 3 p.m. ET.
