Founded in 2016 at Texas A&M University by Dr. Srividya Ramasubramanian, these interactive facilitated discussions on campus racism have been described as “eye-opening”, “informative," “affirming," and “empowering.” The workshops use a conversation café format to facilitate small group discussions of race-related case studies and to collectively brainstorm ideas to make the campus more welcoming for all. The project helps participants grow in active listening, build empathy, and learn to recognize and combat microaggressions.
