This workshop will address how white supremacy, domestic terrorism and violence will hurt everyone in the UMD community. We will learn how these ideologies appear in our communities and practice techniques for engaging and challenging these ideas.
This workshop is open to all students, faculty and staff members in the A. James Clark School of Engineering.
