Conversations with Diaspora - Discussing Race and the Criminal Justice System

Friday, May 15, 2015 - 1:00am

Join Diaspora, PAU Student Organization for Black Mental Health, for a student-led discussion on the influence of race on the criminal justice system.

Numerous recent events, including those in Ferguson, New York, Charleston, and Baltimore, are bringing to light the complicated relationship between police and people of color. Students are invited to submit questions prior to the event through an anonymous online survey. This discussion will be completely confidential, as the organization wants to foster a supportive, nonjudgmental environment in which all students can engage in open and honest dialogue. 

Dinner will be provided. 

RSVP: diaspora@paloaltou.edu 

Submit questions for the discussion

*This event is only for the PAU Community (staff, students, faculty).
 

What is Diaspora?

Diaspora is an organization open to students, staff, and faculty in the PAU community who are interested in mental health issues that impact the Black diaspora. The organization serves to increase awareness of psychological, social, and environmental factors that impact the well-being of the Black community, and to foster fellowship and multiculturalism at Palo Alto University and in the broader community. It also aims to be a resource for addressing career issues that may impact psychology trainees from underrepresented groups.
