White Out? The Future of Oregon's Racial Diversity

Feb 21, 2013, 6:00 PM
PULSE, University Center

Professor Emily Drew of Willamette University leads an engaging discussion on racial integration in society. What does racial integration in Oregon require of us? The event is part of the Oregon Humanities Conversation Project series.



Although 2010 Census data show Oregon's population becoming more racially diverse, the state remains one of the whitest in the nation. Professor Emily Drew will lead a discussion and conversation on how we can fulfill the vision of a racially integrated society.

Drew has been actively engaged in anti-racism programs and organizations for over 20 years. She works with public schools, universities, and community organizations to implement multicultural diversity and social justice. This student discussion will be part of the Conversation Project sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
