This article, co-authored by Baruch College Professor Angie Beeman, offers concrete actions to take to become a better ally.
“Everyone’s Scar Tissue Looks Different”: Discussing Racism at Work: On July 7th, Tahiana Abad, who is a MSEd-HEA student at the Marxe School, describes the culture that inhibits people of color from sharing personal information with colleagues at work. Given this issue, which has been exacerbated by the pandemic, she provides managers with advice to engage their staff members.
Professor Neil Hernandez, who is a member of the Marxe School Diversity Committee, prepared asylum seekers for their interviews at two webinars as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reopened on June 4th (after closure due to COVID-19). The webinars, titled “The Basics of the Asylum Interview,” were organized by RIF Asylum Support, a New York City-based nonprofit organization. And they took place on June 19th and 26th. The latter webinar was in Spanish. His efforts are consistent with the fourth commitment made by the Committee, by way of its Statement of Solidarity and Purpose, “to actively work with marginalized and historically underrepresented minority groups, in New York City and beyond, to achieve social justice and equal justice under the law.”
