How do we connect during a pandemic to share our thoughts on last week’s attempted coup? Current events have reached a fever pitch. While quarantined, many of us are unable to experience the chance encounters—such as running into colleagues at the office or meeting a friend—that afford us informal opportunities to share and interface. The insurrection raises so many issues relevant to the ClassCrits community. The purpose of this event is to provide a safe space for our community to connect on these issues.
The format of this event is as follows: camera “off” means you would like to listen, camera “on” indicates that you would like to participate. We will begin with opening remarks from our distinguished guest speakers and then one of our co-hosts will pose an ice-breaker question seeking thoughts and impressions about events at the Capitol. Participants will each have 20 to 30 seconds to share thoughts. General discussion will follow. This is intended to be a low-pressure environment for our community to start to process the Capitol insurrection.
