Notes

This panel discussion draws from the following list of questions.
• How can students use their voice and collective power to create a more intentionally inclusive environment on their campus?
• Please discuss whether you have any personal conflict with supporting efforts like the Women's March given the challenging history capital F, (i.e. white) feminists have had with addressing intersectionality of race and gender which can alienate black feminists.
• Do you believe major broadcast and cable networks truly understand the value of diversity and inclusion?
• As an academic, how can we use research as a tool for political action, and what are the most effective avenues for academics to engage politically? How do you think higher ed. institutions can help protect and support their campus community in the current political context?
• Recommended reading, listening, viewing of recent books, articles, theater, dance, films, music that inform social justice work and bring stories of the oppressed to the public sphere?
