There always seems to be funding to promote the progressive agenda. Have you noticed this?
The College Fix reports:
George Mason funds ‘anti-racism’ public health grants
Public health researchers who want to advance “anti-racism” and be “inclusive” can get money from George Mason University.
The “Mentoring for Anti-Racism and Inclusive Excellence” program provided grants to two College of Public Health doctoral students, Samantha Kanselaar and Julia Mandeville, for their projects.
However, the taxpayer-funded university declined to give many specifics on how much money would be spent on each project nor what the proposals entailed.
The university “has many research projects in development on a wide range of issues that seek to address society’s grand challenges, with funding from many sectors,” Michelle Thompson, the communications director for the public health college, told The Fix via email in early June.
“While Mason does not share student research proposals, information on the grant is available here,” Thompson wrote. “More details on Mason research can be found at research.gmu.edu.”
The provided links did not provide any information on funding. The application form is hidden behind a wall that can only be accessed by George Mason affiliates.
The Fix could not locate emails for the grant recipients.
Kanselaar’s (pictured, right) project is titled “Structural Racism and Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in Immigrant Communities of Color: A Conceptual Model,” according to the university news release. She will “create a model that explains ways in which structural racism manifests to drive intimate partner violence (IPV) in immigrant communities of color.”
“Immigrant women of color experience high levels of IPV and its consequences, and current explanations typically use gender or culture lenses,” the university’s news release stated. “Less attention has been given to the impact structural racism has on driving IPV.”
