WSU Hosts “Space for Dialogue and Creating Change”

The forum allowed for students, staff and faculty members to speak freely about their feelings and emotions surrounding the death of George Floyd

Today Winona State University had an online forum, where they held an open dialogue about racism.

This community conversation followed a students only meeting which took place on Wednesday.

The forum, run by Winona’s Inclusion and Diversity Office, allowed for students, staff and faculty members to speak freely about their feelings and emotions surrounding the death of George Floyd.

Dr. Jonathan Locust, the Associate Vice President of Equity and Inclusive Excellence, said the focus of the event was, “[To] provide a space where people could just talk. Because a lot of times in these situations there’s so much built up anger and frustration or just not necessarily knowing what to do.”

The student meeting had about 12 participants, and the community meeting had about 90 people who participated.
