The Anti-Racism Collaborative will offer a variety of seminars, symposia, and panels for the University of Michigan community (faculty, students, staff, and other U-M affiliated communities) focused on multidisciplinary topics around racism, racial equity, and racial justice research. These activities reflect an intersectional anti-racism framework. That is, advancing anti-racism is inextricable from efforts to dismantle sexism, classism, ableism, transphobia, and homophobia, as these structures serve to reinforce and maintain white supremacy and its attendant systems of hierarchies of social groups defined as “normal,” “normative,” or “superior.”
These activities are developed in collaboration with our U-M research community and Diversity Scholars Network. We encourage U-M community members to connect with us to suggest and collaborate with us on future activities and events.
