We often associate the concept of "bullying" primarily with children and childhood.  However, bullying takes place beyond schools and playgrounds, on college campuses and into adulthood.  Especially in environments in which people of different cultural and racial backgrounds live, work, and attend class with one another, race and ethnicity are factors in many cases of bullying and stereotyping.

How exactly does racist bullying affect us? What steps can we take to stop racist bullying? How can we become more aware so that we can take a stand against this issue? Come out and watch a brief video highlighting nationally publicized incidents of racial bullying, and afterwards join in our round-table discussion.  Dinner will be provided.
