Past Event - Becoming Allies: Speaking Up

8:00 am to 10:00 am

On April 20th the Diversity Forum continued our theme of Becoming Allies with a specific focus on "Speaking Up". How often have you heard someone say something demeaning or hurtful about a marginalized community? A crucial part of becoming an ally is speaking up.
