Have you ever been in the midst of a conversation, or overheard an insensitive remark and found yourself, standing there, in silence, thinking “What can I say in response to that?” Or, have you ever seen someone treated unjustly, such as being ignored or overlooked in a setting, and you wondered if it was due to that person’s identity (race, ethnicity,  gender, or other visible quality)?    Have you ever then wondered, “what should I have done?”   This session will focus on how to address those uncomfortable situations. The intent is offer tools and suggestions which will help you address such situations as they occur in everyday life. Facilitated by Dr. Frank Dobson and Kathryn Farkas, Graduate Assistant.
