Inspired by student outrage and global anti-racist activism, faculty, staff, and students have organized a series of teach-ins organized around the theme of "Living Legacies of White Supremacy at UTD and Beyond."

This series of conversations will bring together faculty, staff, students, and community leaders to interrogate the living legacies of white supremacy on campus and throughout Dallas. Sessions will also highlight the justice work of people who are mobilizing to resist and unmake these living legacies on campus and our surrounding community. Each session will close with action items for attendees to develop their own justice practices in their everyday lives. This series recognizes and seeks to demonstrate solidarity with the initiatives that faculty and students across campus are organizing around these issues.

We remain deeply grateful to A&H for sponsoring this series, as well as staff from the Gender Center and Office of Community Engagement for contributing their time, labor, and vision to this teach-in series.
