Public invited to April 10 event

logo for eventOn April 10, the community is invited to join a panel presentation at CSU Monterey Bay about race and disability, and how these two identities interact.

The Diversity Dialogue on Race and Disability will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Alumni and Visitors Center. Panelists and the facilitator will encourage the audience to examine ways that race, white privilege and racism impact work on disability issues and inclusion.

Panelists include Alicia Hernandez-Sanchez of the Central Coast Center for Independent Living; Stacey Milbern of the Berkeley Center for Independent Living; Xgamil Campos of Purple Communications; and CSUMB student Tiffany Williams. The facilitator is Erica Padilla-Chavez of the Monterey County Health Department.

The Alumni and Visitors Center is located on Gen. Jim Moore Boulevard at Inter-Garrison Road. While the event is free, visitors must purchase a $2 parking permit (unless they have a valid DMV disabled parking placard and park in a disabled parking space, or have a permit from Hartnell, Cabrillo or Monterey Peninsula College).

The event is sponsored by CSUMB’s Health and Wellness Services, Otter Cross Cultural Center and the Student Fee Advisory Committee.
