2023 Spring Semester

The racially motivated shooting at the Tops supermarket on Buffalo’s East Side in May of this year highlighted the local, national and global implications of structural bias. In response, we are engaging a range of speakers who address the subject of recovery and reclamation through their work in an effort to place this recent tragedy within a broader history and perspective.

How can we respond constructively to events motivated by institutionally-reinforced discrimination?

This series aspires to catalyze restorative thinking throughout the school and its expanded community.
