Community Conversation: Critically Engaged Civic Learning

This event is no longer on sale.

Monday July 11

6:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

Join Cynthia Lynch, the executive director of Salem State’s Center for Civic Engagement for a conversation on the work they are doing to develop and advance best practices in anti-racist community engagement. The conversation will explore a set of four principles she co-authored with her Massachusetts Equity and Engagement Consortium that aim to make sure that community-engaged experiences are anti-racist, break down traditional power dynamics, and build on the cultural wealth of our students and community members.  Additionally, she will discuss and share examples of Critically Engaged Civic Learning (CECL), a new framework that supports the development of equitable community and campus collaborations and equips the partnerships with a useful structure to address the issues that affect their communities.
