Thursday, November 14: Decolonize Thanksgiving
Information Table - Visit this display in the HSS lobby between 10:00
a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Stories told about the first Thanksgiving often
perpetuate harmful stereotypes and racism. Decolonize your Thanksgiving to
go beyond the harmful "pilgrims and Indians" narrative and focus
on common values: generosity, gratitude, community, and good food.

American Awareness Council (NAAC) will be hosting events of interest
