Intersections Co-sponsored Events

In solidarity with nationwide efforts to support Black lives, Utah State University hosted a virtual teach-in to take place on the second day of a national #scholarstrike inspired by professional athletes’ protests against systemic racism. Co-sponsored by the Center for Intersectional Gender Studies and Research, the CHaSS Anti-Oppression Committee, and the Latinx Cultural Center, the USU teach-in sought to connect national conversations to our own academic and local communities. Through a series of panel discussions, USU students and faculty addressed issues such as athletes’ efforts in addressing racial injustice, links between religion and racial (in)justice, COVID-19 and police brutality as public health crises, local perspectives on Black Lives Matter, and police reform in Utah. For information on the national event, visit
