SVCC Host Racial Justice Program January 18

Sauk Valley Community College will host a free racial justice program Wednesday, January 18 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at SVCC in room 1K4.

Rebecca Muñoz-Ripley and Carol Fitzgerald of the YWCA will lead an interactive discussion on race, discrimination and equality. The presentation will not be a lecture but a workshop for participants to learn more about diversity, how it works in society and how to respond to it.

SVCC Student Activities and Association of Latin American Students host this event in hopes that student and community members will come to learn that racial justice is everyone’s responsibility to understand.

Refreshments will be provided during the event. For more information, please contact Ana Salgado, student activities/cross cultural coordinator, at 815-835-6432.
