Today: Rev. Dr. Valentino Lassiter Award Workshop: Embrace, Not Disgrace!

Everyone has prejudice. But how does this prejudice affect the way we perceive and treat people? What does it mean to be a minority on John Carroll’s campus?
To find adequate answers to these questions, join Gurnit Chima, the recipient of Rev. Dr. Valentino Lassiter “Continuing the Dream” award, in her interactive workshop entitled “Embrace, not disgrace!” which will address how stereotypes evolve over time and our means of dispelling them. It is not enough to discuss about injustice, we must act upon it!
The workshop will take place Monday, February 22, between 3:30-5:00 p.m. in the O’Connell Reading Room located in the Dolan Center for Science and Technology.
Reception will follow after the workshop. Refreshments will be provided. No registration required.
