POSTPONED: CEW+ Advocacy Symposium Kick-off Event: Creating Change through Introspection, Dialogue, and Action
Featuring Martha S. Jones, American historian and legal scholar
Join CEW+ for its annual fall Symposium themed Creating Change through Introspection, Dialogue, and Action. The 2020 Symposium includes a diverse group of scholars and community practitioners who embody leadership in varied ways as they advocate for change. This year’s Symposium will be a virtual event that includes a series of presentations and workshops that will take place over the course of the academic year.
At the kickoff event on September 10, Dr. Martha Jones will discuss the role of Black women in the civil rights and voting rights movements and the ongoing struggle for voting rights for different populations. The kickoff will also highlight 2020 CEW+ Carol Hollenshead Inspire Award for Excellence in Promoting Equity and Social Change awardees who will present lightning talks about their work as a precursor to a full-length workshop that will happen later in the academic year as a component of the Symposium. The learning opportunities throughout the year-long Symposium will supplement Democracy and Debate Theme Semester coursework and activities.
This Symposium is free and open to all activists, advocates, and allies from all U-M campuses (students, staff, faculty) as well as the local community.
The CEW+ Advocacy Symposium is organized in partnership with IRWG and Clements Library with funding from CEW+’s Frances & Sydney Lewis Visiting Leaders Fund.
