In this epic moment of reckoning on systemic racism and during the lead up to a U.S. presidential election in November, the Kroc Institute seeks to promote and support the voices of a new generation of voters: young people who experience and care about racism, sexism and other forms of prejudice and inequality, and who expect the political leadership of our country to take these issues seriously.
Join us for a virtual conversation on racial justice and the upcoming presidential election featuring University of Notre Dame students in conversation with political actors.
Student speakers include:
- Kaya Lawrence, Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Student Government, University of Notre Dame
- Janeala Morsby, Graduate Student Union, University of Notre Dame
- Mya Perry, Black Lives Matter - South Bend
