The Falk College community stands united with Syracuse University in educating against the ideas of hate and terror that support and maintain systemic racism and social injustices throughout our society. “Falk College is built on the values of social justice. I look to our Falk family—students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends—to be educated, be brave, and be active. I ask you to engage both your professional skills as advocates, as well as your humanity and personal values, at this time and at all times, to ensure the dignity of all,” says Diane Lyden Murphy, Dean, Falk College. “It is critical for us to support one another in the efforts to combat monumental injustices and continued racism experienced by persons of color in America and around the world.”
On Wednesday, June 3 at 3:00 p.m., Falk College’s Department of Marriage and Family Therapy is offering safe spaces to discuss recent racial injustices. If you or someone you know could benefit from participating in a group listening circle via Zoom with a Syracuse University Doctoral student in Marriage and Family Therapy to discuss these tragic events, please email Dominique Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you or someone you know could benefit from participating in a one-on-one supportive Zoom conversation with a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist to discuss these tragic events, please email Deb Coolhart at email@example.com or Lisa Tedeschi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
