Racial inequality, and racial, gender and sexual violence–in forms both slow and spectacular–have not only persisted through the coronavirus pandemic, but also become even more apparent. This Webinar will discuss the need for universities and community partners to remain engaged in projects that map and respond to inequality and examine how to be responsive in ways that promote collaboration and understanding across axes of difference.
