    TITLE: Do Black Lives Matter in Bilingual Education?

    WHEN: Aug 24, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ET)

    As Black Lives Matter continues to gain new momentum, it is just important to build diverse perspectives and develop a more nuanced approach to theorizing race and identity. Join us to investigate how language and race intersect with this webinar moderated by Dr. Nelson Flores.
