Virtual Field Trip – Equity Symposium 2021
Upward Bound Shelton Invites you to join The Evergreen State College for a virtual Equity Symposium. “This year’s symposium draws its inspiration from the ongoing struggle for Black liberation and Evergreen’s location on the Salish Sea. Our waters embrace the currents of change, while reminding us of the interconnectivity of our ecosystems, our Indigenous and local communities.”
