Antiracism Education

We know that many are struggling in knowing what to do to show meaningful support for our black and brown community members,

so the library organized a program for the community to learn more on how to actively be antiracist. 

This program was comprised of a panel of professionals, who responded to questions about antiracism submitted to the library by North Haven and surrounding community members, in a pre-recorded session. It was recorded on December 2, 2020.

We are thankful for the expertise and insight that our panel members provided. Panel members include:

  • Dr. Karen McLean – Associate Professor and Department Chair, Department of Social Work at Western Connecticut State University 

  • Dr. Yvonne Patterson – Assistant Professor, Social Work Department, at Southern Connecticut State University 

  • Dr. Loida Reyes – Assistant Professor, Social Work Department, at Central Connecticut State University
