Equity, race and ethnicity were big topics at UMD on Wednesday.
The Kirby Center Ballroom hosted nearly 30 workshops which spanned the whole day.
Those in attendance joined in on a variety of discussions centered around achieving justice for everyone regardless of their race, class, or gender.
Event organizers say this event gives people a safe place to learn about the topic.
“I think sometimes when we talk about equity, race and ethnicity sometimes people feel that they do not want to make a mistake, or they don’t know where to start,” said Director of the UMD Office of Diversity and Inclusion Susana Pelayo Woodward. “This is a great opportunity for people to listen, to learn, and to engage in conversation.”
Nearly 600 community members joined the conversation yesterday.
