Coverage

"The JusTalks team creates the workshops collaboratively based on issues prevalent on campus or around the world. The sessions have largely focused on race this year in response to the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement throughout last spring and summer, but they hope to expand to more social issues as well."

"Everyone is so thoughtful and in the know and cares, and yet there’s often a point that we can’t get past in certain conversations because they're just too taboo or they're too painful or we don't know how to have them without causing more harm”- Hannah Laga Abram ’23
