Confronting Racism

On October 10, 2019 the second episode of the second season of Thought on Tap addressed “Confronting Racism” at Laughing Planet. The discussion was facilitated by Stephen Pasqualina (Core Humanities) and featured the following guests: Ayanna Releford (Director of Diversity and Incusion of ASUN), Gariela Ortiz Flores (Assistant Director of ASUN clubs and organizations), Jenna Hanchey (Communication Studies) and José Miguel Pulido León (Director of The Center). Questions asked: How has your personal or professional life been affected by the recent incidents on UNR’s campus surrounding racist rhetoric? Do you think we should embrace this critical language (confront, combat, resist, etc.) or do you think we need to rebrand our mission and adopt more uplifting and affirmative terminology?
