Social Justice Teach-In
Monday, November 6, 2023
Save the date for the second annual Black Solidarity Day, held on the first Monday of November. We encourage you to plan to incorporate that day into your syllabus or work schedule and consider re-assigning your classes or employees to participate in the event.
November 6, 2023 will be the second year in which Black Solidarity Day is an official part of the SUNY Plattsburgh academic calendar. In recognition of Black Solidarity Day, our campus will host a Social Justice Teach-In, featuring programming for the Plattsburgh community about racial justice, anti-racism and social justice. Join us for a series of concurrent events, led by students, staff, faculty and community groups, held all over campus. The theme for this year is: “You Belong: Let’s Erase the Hate.”
This is a day to meditate on the meaning of social justice and civic engagement in what could be a multi-racial democracy. Black Solidarity Day is meant “to highlight racial injustices, societal inequities and to illuminate how Black voices are integral to American life” and our college community. We invite students, faculty, staff and community members to contribute a teach-in session that speaks directly to the meaning of Black Solidarity Day and/or that engages with social justice, broadly defined.
