Event Details

National Teach-In on the Presidential Executive Order 
Banning Muslims, Immigrants, and Refugees

 

 The National Teach-In on the Presidential Executive Order intends to assist educators and students in answering the following questions:

1. What are the legal and historical contexts and issues raised by these immigration policies? 

2. How are students (K-12, undergraduate, and graduate), parents, and families being affected? 

3. What rights people have and what resources are available? 

4. What are some ways that college and university faculty, staff, and students can respond? 

 

Teach-in speakers will include lawyers, activists, and academics with experience working with Muslim and immigrant communities. Although this teach-in is primarily virtual (via Google hangouts), we encourage educators to participate with their classes, organize viewings, and host dialogue sessions in their schools or on their campuses.

The Google hangout link and participation instructions, including how to send questions/comments, will be emailed one hour before the event. 


If you are organizing a viewing session on your campus or calling-in with your class, please RSVP using the "class or group" ticket option. 


If you have any questions, please email the event organizers at  teachinEO2017@gmail.com.

USC Race and Equity Center

The University of Southern California Race and Equity Center is the nexus of interdisciplinary scholarship, resources, programs, and initiatives designed to address issues of racial equity within the University, other institutions of higher education, and broader society. The Center is the home of the National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climates (NACCC), a quantitative survey instrument designed to assess structural and experiential inequities resulting from oppressive and discriminatory campus environments, and the USC Equity Institutes, a profession learning and execuitve education program for college and university leaders to develop and improve skills related to advancing racial equity. 

The Center’s strength resides in its interdisciplinarity, whereby USC faculty affiliates from across 19 academic schools conducting research, programs and initiatives, and other forms of public scholarship pertaining to race collaborate on the production of groundbreaking research in education, law and public policy, health and human services, the humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields. Affiliated faculty aslo collaborate on grant proposals, publications and research reports, the production of digital media, colloquia, and other signature Center events. Lastly, faculty affiliates serve as a resource and feedback group to senior USC administrators as they aim to make the University more racially diverse, inclusive, and equitable. The Center also unites Ph.D. students from across USC's academic schools who share interests in the study of race and equity through our REC Doctoral Fellows program, which meets to discuss pressing racial issues in the U.S., brainstorm opportunities for academic partnerships, offer feedback on each other’s ideas and written work, and collaborate on research projects that ultimately lead to conference presentations and publications.
