Fall 2020 Convocation
On September 29th Sac State had its inaugural Fall 2020 Convocation, Advancing Our Commitment to Antiracism, which brought together the campus community for important discussions and presentations on moving forward on the path to antiracism and inclusion.
The Convocation featured keynote speakers Ibram X. Kendi, author of the national bestseller How to Be an Antiracist, and Shaun Harper, director of the University of Southern California’s Race and Equity Center. It also offered 20 breakout sessions exploring subjects including: the intersection of race and disability; creating a safe campus for undocumented students; racism and antiracism in education; and the intersection of race, mental health, and COVID-19.The keynote speakers and many of the breakout sessions were recorded and can be accessed for on-demand viewing from the Convocation website.
Sacramento State must now build upon what we have learned and move toward transformational change.
