Cornbread & Chili Night

Thursday, September 28, 2017

4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Student Org. Center, 2nd Floor CDC, St. Paul Campus

The Student Senate and Multicultural & International Programs & Services (MIPS) present the first of this Fall's Corn Bread & Chili Night series: What Now, America? This conversation will unpack recent events in Charlottesville, VA and the repeal of DACA.

In the aftermath of recent events in Charlottesville, VA, and the unwarranted repeal of DACA, these events have left many feeling unsettled, concerned, and unsure about the direction in which our country is headed. This event will feature a panel of local experts to revisit what happened in Charlottesville and the DACA decision, and explore how they connect to the current conversation of race and xenophobia in America.

Join the conversation to learn what we can do as a St. Kate's community to respond to these events.

Vegetarian chili will be served.
