This years’ Teach-In on Safety and Well-Being brings together perspectives, ideas, and theories related to a very core concern to all on campus: how do we feel safe and what can well-being mean to us and what does it look like? The theme of Safety and Well Being interrogates the idea of what safety is within the grander context of an oppressive society. How do we practice self-care when faced with not only institutional racism, but with overt racist behaviors and attitudes? What steps do we take towards wellness?
The goal of Black Lives Matter Pratt (BLM-Pratt) is to showcase workshops and panels from some of the most creative and critically forward thinkers of our time. We believe in fostering conversations that inspire, educate and engage with the Brooklyn community in substantial ways.
