Tune in to the Racial Justice Teach-In

The Augustana Diversity Council is sponsoring a Racial Justice Teach-In in conjunction with the national Scholar Strike Sept. 8-9 to raise consciousness on issues of race, social justice and inequality, particularly in regards to policing in communities of color.

Augustana faculty and administrators will be teaching on these issues. These 15-minute videos will be played on Augustana’s YouTube channel Wednesday beginning at 8:30 a.m. CDT. Learn about other ways to engage.
