UCF hosts ‘Social Justice Week’ to address racism, deportation
The University of Central Florida is kicking off 2017 with an entire week devoted to promoting social justice issues like “racial battle fatigue” and protecting illegal immigrants from deportation.
Edwanna Andrews, director of the UCF Social Justice and Advocacy office, revealed the schedule for Social Justice Week in an email to students last week, announcing events such as a “Breaking Barriers Lunch” and a “Tunnel of Oppression” that will take place during the last full week of January.
“Our events this year are very intentional, timely, and will be impactful in engaging the campus community in conversation,” Andrews asserts in the email, urging recipients to “feel free to encourage your students and colleagues to attend.”
The week begins with an event titled “#Triggered: RacialBattleFatigue,” which the event description defines as “the psychological and physical symptoms [that] many People of Color experience due to various direct and indirect forms of racism.”
“#Triggered is an opportunity to discuss the psychological impact of racism on various minority groups and what we as a community can do to help each other,” the description adds. “Join us as we discuss and understand more about the role racism has on our mental health.”
