Dear Western Community,
As you likely know, the spread of coronavirus continues to be a rapidly evolving situation. There have been a few additional cases in King and Snohomish counties attributed to coronavirus disease, which you have likely heard about in the news by now. I want to share with you our ongoing work to ensure that Western is prepared to deal with this issue.
20th Annual Bellingham Human Rights Film Festival begins Feb. 20, with many films screened on campus
Since 2000, the Bellingham Human Rights Film Festival has screened hundreds of inspirational films about ordinary people advocating for rights, including to live peaceably and for a healthy planet.
Members of the Whatcom Human Rights Task Force, including retired WWU staff member Shirley Osterhaus, will present an interactive program looking at a number of sites of historic racism in Whatcom County, defining and providing contemporary examples of systemic racism, facilitating group discussion, and providing resources for further education and action.
