Lakota Harden and Paul Kraft outline the University of Alaska Southeast’s speaker series on Racial Justice and Social Equity. The first speaker will be Tim Wise (10 A.M. – noon), Thursday, September 10) on “unlearning racism.” The program emerged out of local interest in learning more about decolonization and what that means. The Sitka Health Summit, Sitka Tribe of Alaska, the Sitka STEPS grant, and the Pathways Coalition are partners in the series. Learn more or register.
