2020-2021 Marquette Forum:  Acknowledging and Healing the Wounds of Racial Injustice

Marquette Forum’s focus on the effects of racism on our campus, in our community, and in our world.  The forum is inspired very directly by the activism of #BlackLivesMatter and the historically rooted pandemic of racism in our society, as well as the call for greater solidarity and their call for action based upon the Universal Apostolic Preferences.  Based on President Lovell’s call for Marquette to work toward eliminating racial inequity, the 2020-21 Forum will provide an opportunity to sustain an action-oriented agenda throughout the year drawing interest from students, faculty, and staff at Marquette. The Forum’s purpose is twofold, to confront the dynamics of racism at personal and institutional levels and provide the Marquette community with an opportunity to pursue innovative ideas and create spaces for programming that transcend cultural, community, and disciplinary boundaries.
