The Red River Antiracism Collaborative (RRARC) was formed during the 2009-2010 academic year when several campuses came together to support and more fully address antiracism in institutions of higher education in the ND/MN region. Member institutions to date include Minnesota State University-Moorhead through the Training our Campuses Against Racism (TOCAR) Office; North Dakota State University (NDSU); Valley City State University (VCSU); the University of North Dakota (UND) College of Education and Minnesota State Community & Technical College - Moorhead (M-State). This event is free and open to the public. Any campuses interested in joining the RRARC or anyone with questions about the work of the Collaborative may contact Dr. Phyllis May-Machunda, TOCAR Director at MSUM via email at email@example.com or Dr. Amy Phillips, Co-Founder of TOCAR via email at firstname.lastname@example.org

The Human Development and Family Science Gertrude Weigum Hinsz Lecture Series at North Dakota State University is bringing Dr. Stephen Russell to Fargo-Moorhead to share his life work, stories and resources for local educators, students, families and anyone that works with youth.
Dr. Russell has dedicated the last 15 years of his research to looking at issues facing sexual minority youth – youth who are LGBT. He has looked at the health risks for sexual minority adolescents, including whether an adolescent’s home life, school and/or faith community lead to risk or protect against it. Currently, Dr. Russell is conducting research that focuses on how families, schools and other support systems can aid in the healthy development of LGBT young people. His research has been integral in helping advocacy organizations, school districts and state education departments develop policy that is supportive of a learning environment that is inclusive and safe for LGBTQ youth.
Reception to follow in the Prairie Rose Room with Dr. Russell.
