United Against Anti-Blackness
Spring: Saturday, March 25 - Saturday, April 1, 2023
This program will provide participants with an opportunity to explore the way anti-blackness intersects with several issues (education, migration, economic access) and how community and non-profit organizations, including the Jesuits in the area, are adding to the conversation. We will be partnering with the Caribbean Social Immersion Program and Centro Montalvo, a social and educational center of the Society of Jesus in the Dominican Republic, with the support of Jesuit organizations in Cuba, Haiti, Guyana, Colombia and Perú. Centro Montalvo is dedicated to implementing programs of accompaniment and social training, as well as research, communication and advocacy in the Dominican Republic.

Preparation meetings will be on Tuesdays from 5:45 - 7:15 PM weeks 6-10 of Winter Quarter. Financial aid is available.
