Even before the pandemic, navigating higher education was extremely stressful for underrepresented minority students. Drs. Kathleen Isaac and Alice Shepard, both of whom counsel students in academic settings, discuss the articles they contributed to the recent Social justice issue of GROUP (Vol. 43, No.2-4 [Winter 2019]) in which they illustrate how their activist approach to group work supports these marginalized students. They will also talk about how the COVID-19 pandemic is disproportionately impacting people of color in general, and their students in particular.

Join our conversation, facilitated by Christine Schmidt, guest editor of the Social Justice issue of GROUP, and Rudy Lucas, co-chair of the Work Group for Racial Equity.

This conversation is open to all and is free of charge.
