Panelists talk about concrete steps to dismantle systemic racism. Toxic seeds were planted four hundred years ago, and at this moment, we need to acknowledge that this is a particularly traumatic and enraging time for students, faculty, and staff of color at Portland State University and beyond, and we together have a responsibility to accelerate us toward an equitable future.
Panelists: Ted Van Alst, director of Indigenous Nations Studies and the School of Gender, Race and Nations; Jola Ajibade (Geography); whose work focuses on human-environment challenges through a political ecology lens; Alex Sager (Philosophy), whose work focuses on the ethics of migration; and Jose Coll, dean of PSU's School of Social Work.
