About this Event
1045 Wilson Blvd., Rochester, NY 14627http://bit.ly/WitnessToInjustice
The Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center invites University of Rochester Staff and Faculty to a Witness to Injustice program led by Neighbors of Onondaga Nation and Haudenosaunee community members on Monday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the River Level (First Floor) of the Interfaith Chapel, River Campus. The College Diversity Roundtable is sponsoring a free lunch afterward. Registration is required as seating is limited.
This is a unique, three-hour, interactive group teaching tool and participatory event designed to foster truth, understanding, and respect between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island. Turtle Island is a reference to what is known as North America, a continent inhabited from time immemorial by Indigenous peoples. This amazing professional opportunity allows participants to go through the sharing of history that many Americans have not been taught in school.
This event is coordinated by members of the Native American Indigenous Affairs Working Group of the Institutional Office of Equity and Inclusion, hosted by the Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center, and the free lunch sponsored by the College Diversity Roundtable.
