Center for Civic Engagement

Black Out Tuesday Banner

On Black Out Tuesday, activists all over the world are encouraging individuals to stay off their social media and to educate themselves about the Black Lives Matter movement as well as racism in our society. In response to this, the Center for Civic Engagement wanted to provide a list of resources for our students who want to learn.
