Highlights from the Beyond the Rhetoric Series Are Available!

August 17, 2022




Beyond the Rhetoric: Civil Rights & Our Shared Responsibility was a two-part series that examined different understandings of, and approaches to, furthering human rights and civil liberties in the United States. The series began in the summer of 2021 with four virtual lectures and panels, concluding with a two-day virtual symposium engaging seasoned and emerging social justice leaders to explore critical intersecting civil and human rights issues, as well as how individuals, communities, and policy makers can work together to create a more equitable future for all.

The symposium comprised of seven sessions, including presentations, and panel discussions. This programming is made available to all now in the "Beyond the Rhetoric: Civil Rights & Our Shared Responsibility report with access the entire suite of video recordings, reflection questions and actionable items. Enjoy a playlist of the various sessions, here.


Thank you to our program partners for making this possible: The Ford Foundation, The Dudley T. Dougherty Foundation and the Jacob & Terese Hershey Foundation.
