In light of the recent rise in racism and anti-Semitism in NC and the U.S., also and especially in secondary schools and college campuses, the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Peace Studies will join the Reich

College of Education in its Teaching Justice, Teaching Love event that is based on the belief that educators have an incredibly important role to play in shaping human relationships towards more equitable and just ones.

On Thursday, January 26, 2017 the Reich College of Education will be hosting "Teaching Justice, Teaching Love," in the lobby of the College of Education. This event aims to emphasize how educators can confront injustice and inequity with creativity, knowledge, and experience. Groups from the RCOE and across campus will provide resources, demonstrations, and special performances throughout the day (11-4:30). The College of Education is located on the ASU campus at 151 College Street in Boone, N.C. Parking is available in the parking deck across the street from the College of Education building.
