UConn School of Social Work is part of UConn Alumni's #ThisIsAmerica series, which brings together UConn faculty, alumni, and students to discuss and unpack systematic racism, social justice, and human rights issues. It spotlights the individuals, organizations and movements fighting for justice and equity, and against oppression and white supremacy.
