  • "You must get connected to the struggle for justice...Change from being 'not racist' to 'anti-racist'." -Dr. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva

  • “Sexual assault on college campuses or anywhere is a topic that affects every one of us, women and men, throughout the world.
    We invite everyone to be a part of this discussion and to be a part of the creation of a safe, secure and empowering world for all.”
    -Dr. Hoda Mahmoudi [From Victim To Survivor]

  • “What I’m hoping is that we can produce spaces where people can speak honestly...You can listen to anyone and get cultural
    insight.” -Dr. John L. Jackson, Jr.

  • “It is difficult to determine a paradigm that will describe women’s behavior in conflict. The responses of women to the Syrian
    uprising are indeed pluralistic. The path of Syrian women to equality is stretched, but as long as the violent struggle
    continues, women will probably not take part in it.” -Dr. Fruma Zachs

  • The twin scourges of racism and prejudice fundamentally undermine prospects for a more peaceful world by denying
    opportunities to their victims, debasing their enablers, and impeding mutually beneficial cooperation among diverse individuals
    and communities at the local, national, and international levels.
