In this session Gbrielle Schavran will introduce the programs Breaking Borders has created and participated in over the years. She will then turn the presentation over to the student leaders that will focus on identites and how they intersect with race, ethnicity, cultures and our societal access to opportunities. This is a zoom intereactive session that will address the entire group of attendants and then have breakout groups activites and discussions. We reconvene for a debrief and closing. Sophia Chaudri and Student leaders will facilitate the conversations and activities. Opening activities focus on the multiple identities all individuals value in themselves. These activities open the conversation about personal and societal perceptions and expectations in various communities. Activist programs and ideas will be shared. Break out group activities will involve human barometer statements and discussions that zero in on factors within identities that effect perceptions and misconceptions. Discussions of microaggressions and sense of safety, as well as motivation to get involved in social activism will be explored. Organized activism ideas will be shared.
