Event Description

In response to recent deaths of black men by police, Bethel CAS student leaders in collaboration with several university departments and offices are sponsoring a panel discussion on the question, "Why are people saying black lives matter?" All Bethel community members are encouraged to attend this important dialogue featuring both student and faculty voices. Our purpose is to address how Bethel’s core value of reconciliation compels us to bring solutions and healing to the ongoing tragic consequences surrounding race, policing, and other issues related to social justice.
