OneShared.World: Youth Activism, Community Engagement and the Reality of Global Interdependence

  • Description:
    OneShared.World is a bold and visionary response to our ongoing global crises. The pandemic has exposed the failure of the world’s nations to meet basic human needs and respond constructively to shared global threats. Furthermore, this failure stems from our inability to act in ways that recognize humanity’s deep interdependence. What affects one of us will eventually affect all of us. Whether addressing pandemics, climate change, systemic poverty, or racial inequality, OneShared.World emphasizes that our fates are bound together. This event will explore the OneShared.World model and, in particular, the role that youth are playing to advance initiatives that embrace the interconnectedness of people and the need to collaborate on the complex challenges confronting us all. Young people from diverse backgrounds and countries will share their experiences of activism on some of the most critical issues of our time. They will discuss what spurred them into action, who inspired them, the kinds of obstacles they face, and meaningful moments in their journeys. All are welcome. Questions? Contact ethics@brandeis.edu. Hosted by the International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life -- the home of the ENACT program.

Black Lives Matter under a New Presidency: What Lies Ahead?

  • Description:
    Please join us to hear the thoughts of past awardees of the Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Prize and the Richman Distinguished Fellowship in Public Life on the directions of the Black Lives Matter movement at this pivotal moment in our nation’s history. What might we expect in the near future as we transition from a Trump to Biden administration? How might we, as a society, avoid returning to the status quo on questions of racial inequity and social justice? Might the racial and ethnic health disparities made so visible by the pandemic trigger a rethinking of public policy and programs? What can we, as individuals, do to support the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement in order to bring about lasting and meaningful change? Panelists: Angela Glover Blackwell (2014 Richman Fellow), Founder in Residence, PolicyLink Jeffrey L. Brown (2017 Richman Fellow), Founder of RECAP (Rebuilding Every Community Around Peace) Beverly Daniel Tatum (2018 Gittler Recipient), president emerita, Spelman College Welcome: Ron Liebowitz, President, Brandeis University Moderator: Carina E. Ray, Associate Professor of African and African American Studies, Harry Coplan Chair of Social Sciences, Brandeis University Sponsored by the Office of the President of Brandeis University; the Brandeis University Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and the International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life -- the home of the national ENACT program.
