Framing Issues with a Racial Equity Lens

Upcoming Module for Fall Semester 2018

Belief systems, which inform policy and law, can contribute to and perpetuate injustice. This injustice rests on unconscious and conscious beliefs about who matters in society and who does not. In order to make right what is inherently wrong, collective action is required. This learning module is based on the work of the Applied Research Center, a thirty-year-old racial justice think tank that uses media, research and activism to promote solutions. This module provides examples of how injustice is perpetuated through the media and court systems. By working with art, film clips and other activities participants will learn the importance of framing an issue with a racial equity lens and practice it.

The purpose of Framing Issues with a Racial Equity Lens module is:

  • To understand the power of ‘framing’
  • To learn how ‘re-framing’ is an important tool for building effective strategies for racial equity and change
  • To explore how media coverage and public discourse can be shifted to impact outcomes

Sixty minute sessions will be facilitated by School of Nursing Diversity & Inclusion Council members and the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity: Jonathan Wetherbee, Rebecca Tucker, Yvette Conyers and Ashley Campbell.
