Introducing Harvard Kennedy School Summer Teach-In
The United States is currently engaged in a time of rebirth, a “great awakening.” Citizens across the world are leading the charge in critical mass against the intolerance of racial injustice. Ignited by the murder of George Floyd, champions from every class, ethnicity, religion, and age, as well as leaders in activism, grassroots organizers, and private and public industries, are emerging in power and growing in strength.
This summer, the IOP, CPL and WAPP will convene the Harvard Summer Teach-Ins series. Teach-ins transform college and university campuses into political fora in which students, faculty, and staff can take collective responsibility and action on the issues facing their community. IOP Resident Fellow F'19 LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter Fund, will facilitate this series of events featuring leading activists, organizers, and change-makers. These conversations are meant to discuss the current movement and ways we can each walk, act, write, or speak in the name of change.
