On March 7, 2019, we hosted a one-day sympoisum, Offering Refuge, Building Solidarity: Universities as Sanctuaries. We considered the possibilities of building and sustaining coalitions around the coordinated attacks on racialized and migrant communities, and were especially interested in highlighting how activist-scholars learn from other one other, across the campus, across generations, and across the globe. Offering Refuge, Building Solidarity offered scholars, activists, and students an opportunity for dialogue about the many ways the university can be mobilized for the purposes of sanctuary and for solidarity.
A list of takeaways from the conversations is available in this PDF.
