Facilitated by Kristen Luschen and Diana Fernandez with support from DS4Si and many staff and faculty on campus
Looking Back, Moving Forward” is a week of reflection and education that launches a year-long process to involve the community in shaping the contours of Hampshire’s commitment to anti-racism. The goal of this week is to strengthen community understanding of Hampshire’s history with anti-racism and racial justice organizing as well as our current and future institutional commitments. Community members can engage with this material through interactive exhibits, storytelling, theater workshops, panels, and facilitated discussions. The participation of every member of the Hampshire community is important in order to advance Hampshire’s commitment to anti-racism in an informed, intentional, and participatory manner. This week of events was developed with the help of many campus partners and at the recommendation of the Advisory Council on Hampshire’s Commitment to Anti-Racism in collaboration with the Advisory Councils on Speaking Across Resilient Communities (SPARC) and Sexual Misconduct and Campus Safety.
