BIPOC Town Hall

Hosted a BIPOC Town Hall intended to provide an inclusive safe space in which BIPOC students could comfortably create a dialogue on topics ranging from systemic oppression and racism to everyday personal challenges. The Town Hall focused mainly on supporting and connecting those students while also identifying issues, advocating for change, and providing resources to ensure equitable opportunities for each student.

Women at War: 12 Ukrainian Artists

An art exhibition depicting the works of 12 leading Ukrainian contemporary female artists. The different mediums that comprised the exhibition provided local context to a distant conflict meant to echo the struggle of persecuted minorities around the world. Intentionally showcasing only female artists ensured a deserving platform for women to narrate their own history and give insight to a gendered perspective of war.
