Miriam Neptune Facilitates Community Conversation

January 7, 2019

On December 16, Miriam Neptune, Director of Teaching, Learning, and Digital Scholarship, facilitated a community conversation in the Bronx about race, immigration and citizenship with Dominican lawyer and activist Altagracia Jean Joseph and Alexis Francisco, a grad student at Union Theological Seminary. They discussed what has happened to the over 200,000 people of Haitian descent who have became stateless in the Dominican Republic since 2013, the increase in violence against women and the LGBTQIA community, and how allies in the US can respond.
