Protesting against Racism


Racial Equity & Social Justice Town Hall Series

All ELAC students and employees are invited to attend our monthly town hall anti-racism series to build an anti-racist culture at ELAC. The purpose of these monthly anti-racism town halls is to provide an ongoing forum whereby members of the ELAC community can learn about anti-racism work across the campus and community.
