ROOTED Dinner & Dialogue: "You say you don't like the Core. What are you doing about it?"

Thursday, February 7, 2019
6:30pm to 8:30pm

After the white supremacist occurrences on our campus last semester, it is essential for us as a community to come together and challenge power structures. How can we aim to target oppressive structures not only at the institutional level, but also within ourselves? How can we work to constructively hold ourselves and others accountable, and how can we make a true difference? Join us on Thursday, February 7, 6:30–8:30 p.m., to discuss these topics and more. 

ROOTED Dinner & Dialogue is the group’s hallmark dialogue series. Students of all identities and experiences are invited to participate in peer-facilitated conversations on a host of topics. Past topics have ranged from “Politics of Hair” to “Gentrification in Harlem” to “Complications of Classism in Community Service.” Each conversation’s goal is to explore how power and privilege intersect with the topic, what participants can learn from hearing one another's experiences and what can be collectively gained through recognizing our own power and social responsibility.
