Congratulations to Rachel Tache, Clinical Psychology graduate student, who was awarded a mini-grant from the Society for Research on Adolescence to develop the Systems of Oppression Learning Tool.
 
The tool will be a freely accessible, online, critical consciousness raising platform for the dissemination of curricula about the historical bases and current sociopolitical implications of a number of interconnected systems of oppression, including colonialism/imperialism, capitalism, heteropatriarchy, white supremacy, and ableism. This grant serves to compensate members of a community advisory board tasked with reviewing and providing feedback about the tool prior to wider dissemination.

We are sorry to say that our speaker cannot make it up to DC for tomorrow's colloquium due to the hurricane. We will post when we are able to re-schedule his talk. Stay tuned for more news on our next regularly scheduled colloquium speaker on November 9th: Dr. Hart Blanton from Texas A & M University.
