The Community Engagement Initiative...
...along with the Biden School of Public Policy & Administration, the Institute for Public Administration, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Faculty Senate, African Heritage Caucus, and The University of Delaware Antiracism Initiative...Are pleased to offer a year-long speaker series dedicated to Racial Justice.
The death of George Floyd, the injuring of Jacob Blake and many other African Americans who have been subjects of police violence, has moved people of all races and ethnicities throughout the world to respond to these atrocities with determination that their deaths will mark the beginning of an end to the long and tragic history of racial injustice. Large crowds of peaceful protestors in communities across the nation have demanded a change not only in police practices but in our nation’s priorities as a democratic society that demonstrates respect for all lives. CEI is committed to supporting these changes by applying the knowledge, creativity and civic commitment of the University of Delaware to the critical challenges facing communities in Delaware and across the nation. No community challenge is more critical now than securing equal justice.During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Community Engagement Initiative will provide programming and resources designed to provide solutions to current racial inequities in our local and global communities. The broad range of projects demonstrate the many ways UD is collaborating in and with community partners to create a more just and inclusive world.
