Women’s and Gender Studies is hosting radical collective care and resistance sessions for Black-identified students with Rai Reece, a Black-identified mediator this Thursday, Nov. 26. Radical collective care offers a starting point to support Black students and to address the structural care deficit that Black students experience.
A professor of sociology at Ryerson University, Dr. Reece is an interdisciplinary scholar-activist whose expertise includes Canadian Black feminism, critical race theory, anti-Black racism, punishment and misogynoir, critical feminist criminology, community-based ethnography, prison health, equity as social praxis, and abolition and activism. She was named one of the 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women in 2020.
These circle sessions will be held via Microsoft Teams and require registration in advance. They are intended for Black-identified students only and will be held Thursday at 2 to 4 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.
If there is overwhelming demand, more sessions may be added at a future date. More details and a link to online registration can be found on the Radical Collective Care webpage.
