Call for presentations for the Take A Stand! Sit-In! event Nov. 22 and 23, 2021

Take A Stand! Sit-In!  November 22 and 23, 2021

Inspired by the Scholar Strike Initiative and LCC’s own Take A Stand! Sit-In! events, LCC employees are invited to submit proposals for presentations related to social justice, equity, or race. Presentations that reflect your passion for a subject, engage our LCC community in activities or discussions and promote a greater degree of clarity on a contemporary issue are encouraged.  Take A Stand! Sit-In! offers a platform for others to Sit In if you are willing to Take A Stand.

The event will be virtual on November 22 and 23, with plans to include 10 sessions showcasing the LCC community as well as beginning and ending with featured local artists. This reflects our commitment to incorporating community and creative voices into these learning conversations. If you are unable to participate personally, please consider having your students attend one or more sessions as an assignment or extra credit. The sessions will last 60 to 90 minutes. If you would like more information or have questions, please feel free to reach out to Brad Hicks.

For more information and for the proposal form, go to the Take A Stand! Sit-in! website. The proposal process is not complicated. Submit your proposal with your contact information, session title, and a brief description of the session, short biography, and initial thoughts concerning engaging the audience during your presentation. Proposal submission is due by Friday, September 10th.
