Music has the power to inspire, evoke powerful emotion, and heal our communities. In this event, we will explore the connection between music and health, explaining why music’s redemptive power may hold more potential than we realize. How does music speak to people in ways language cannot? Why is music education vitally important, especially to those who are most in need? Change starts small. It can begin with something as simple as a daily artistic practice, a creative habit. But over time, that small commitment to our creativity will blossom and ripple through our communities in a way that connects us to our greater humanity.

Equity Talks Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our nation has never existed without racism, marginalization, and oppression. What does a world without these harms look like and is it possible to create this world in our lifetimes? Join us as we imagine a future of equity, and discuss what it will take to get there, and how we all can move toward creating a world where all people can freely enjoy civil rights and humanity.

The initial Teach For America application includes two short answer questions, and your responses are a valuable opportunity to bring to life your accomplishments and desire for impact. Several alumni volunteers who successfully navigated the application process in the past have volunteered to facilitate small groups of 3-5 people who are interested in applying to TFA. You'll have the chance to opt into the group that feels like the best fit for you and, after an hour of collaboration time, you'll emerge with stronger short answer responses.

As the heat of the planet rises, so too does the pressure on rising generations to find solutions to heal our environment. Such pressure gives rise to a new climate-induced crisis: our own mental health. How is climate change altering the way we relate to stress and trauma, our decisions about our future, and the increased disparities experienced by marginalized communities? Join us as we sit at the intersection of climate change, social justice, and mental health and discuss how we can all contribute to the harmony of our world and our own inner peace.

Consumer culture is a culprit of inequities in our lives, and especially lives of marginalized communities. In this event, we'll examine the intersection of capitalism, race, and the fashion industry, how sustainability and consumerism try (but often fail) to coexist, and how we can examine and unlearn our consumer behavior to ensure we further equity and decrease our contributions to the environmental crisis.
