Racial Justice

Dr. Eve Passerini, Associate Professor

The Racial Justice Minor centers the concerns and experiences of US Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and Pacific Islander, and other People of Color (POC), while also exploring the roots of whiteness because concepts of race and ethnicity are fundamental to the power of intersecting systems of both oppression and resistance. The minor focuses on Structural/Historical Racism, Interpersonal Racism/Bias, Identity and Social Construction, Resistance Movements, Antiracism, and Race/Religion/Jesuit Values - in an effort to dismantle racial hierarchies and build equitable communities. This minor deepens our understanding of, and commitment to, racial and ethnic justice, and will allow us to better project those values and solutions out into the world beyond Regis.
