Over the last few months, there have been a number of very traumatic moments that have left many of us devastated. George Floyd is not an isolated case. We are reminded of other lives lost unjustly, such as Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, who joined a list of hundreds of other victims.
With all of the advancements the country prides itself with, we are still fighting for basic rights and equality for ALL as a nation. A platform such as ours has the privilege and responsibility to be an advocate for change, a force for good, and an ally to all communities.
We welcome you to attend the launch of our DEI series on Exploring Racial Equity, Advocacy, And Social Justice in American Agriculture.
What are organizations and administrators working with land-grant institutions across the country doing to address inequities present since the inception of these institutions?
This webinar discusses historical racial disparities between 1862, 1890, and 1994 land-grant institutions as it relates to tenure, quality of programs, and resource allocation. This webinar will also address ongoing efforts to create more equitable opportunities through food and agricultural programs for historically marginalized groups.
