Virtual Unity Week: Let's talk about race - Zoom discussion
San Diego Mesa College Professer Jorge Villalobos will moderate a Zoom discussion called Let's Talk About Race, from 12:45 to 2:10 p.m. on Thursday, April 16, 2020. A Canvas account is required to join.
During this sessions, participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences dealing with racism, micro-aggressions, discriminations, and other race-related issues. The format of this session will be similar to a forum in which a moderator will start the conversations and ask specific questions that would help participants share their answers in a safe and culturally-responsive environment. The session will be presented via Zoom and will have a moderator Jorge Villalobos, several students from Prof. Villalobos's ENGL 205 class, and at least one more faculty member. At the same time, other participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences via text. There will be a Padlet link available to those participants.
