Making Voices Heard

Making Voices Heard CoverThis video, funded by the President’s Commitment to Community Initiative, features diverse UConn undergraduates, graduate students, and young professionals in conversations about their experiences of racism and how we can respond positively to current challenges. Faculty members Alaina Brenick (HDFS) and Clewiston Challenger (Educational Psychology) then discuss relevant research and make suggestions about how we can move forward as individuals and as a community. You can choose, below, to watch the 90-second “teaser,” the introduction to the launch, the half-hour “highlights,” or each of the three, separate, half-hour chapters.
