The MOMENTUM series is a talk continuum and the Dean’s platform to engage the division in profound practice of mindfulness and actionable conversation – to bridge the equity gap, protect inclusivity, amplify social justice reform and intentionally address structural racism in our classrooms, college and the community.

MOMENTUM: A LECTURE SERIESThe purpose is to strengthen each other’s optimism, emotional control, empathy, perspective talk, prosocial goals and mindful attention.

It is a space to discuss and mobilize how we can better help our college’s work on policing equity and ending racism once and for all.

This film highlights the challenges that Filipinx/a/o nurses face during the COVID-19 pandemic and unearths the colonial ties between the Philippines and the United States that have led to Filipino American nurses becoming the unsung backbone of the U.S. health industry. This event is co-sponsored by the Women, Gender and Sexuality Center and the Division of Social Sciences and Humanities, with additional support from the departments of Asian American and Asian Studies and Nursing.
