As IUP students started the new semester, members of the Indiana community, including tutors from the Jones White Writing Center, participated in a week-long Stand Against Racism Event event in the Oak Grove outside of Stapleton Library.

Stand Against Racism aims to unite the community in raising awareness of the severely damaging impacts of systemic and social racism. It is a nationwide movement that thousands of communities participate in. Here at IUP, Stand Against Racism events take place on the first day of the month during the fall and spring semesters from noon to 1:00 p.m. in front of Stapleton Library. All are welcome to join the Jones White Writing Center and the rest of the Indiana community in this movement.
