S.A.F.E. Zone presents History of Exclusionary Laws and Policies on May 18

Submitted by Debra J Bolton

Have you ever wondered why we continue to focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging or equitable representation of historically excluded or underrepresented identities? Throughout history, laws and policies were written to support the exclusion of some populations in favor of others. Some of those ideas and practices continue today, so let us talk about them.

Please mark your calendars for this S.A.F.E. Zone virtual class at 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 18. Participants will explore in a lively discussion the timeline of exclusionary thought, which gave way to subsequent laws and policies supported by prominent historical leaders beginning with Aristotle, circa 300 BCE.

Please register for the class here.

The zoom link will be sent to participants on the morning of May 18.

Additionally, a S.A.F.E. Zone Introductory Class is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. May 25. Please register for the introductory class here.

As a program of K-State, S.A.F.E. Zone envisions academic and social environments where students, faculty and staff possess senses of belonging and experience conditions in which they thrive.
