- #J18 CALL
Poised between Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the presidential inauguration, #J18 is an opportunity to affirm the role of critical thinking and academic knowledge in challenging Trumpism. We are asking educators and students across the United States and around the world to consider organizing a program or classroom activity on that day which speaks to the many issues and themes related to this national and indeed global moment. Our #J18 website will collect such information and serve as a platform that connects these numerous nodes of education and protest.
At UCLA, we anticipate a full day of teach-ins, actions, assemblies, performances, and panels. Whether it is a public event or a discussion in your classroom, we urge you to sign up for #J18 here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeYGV7HUWAFr3-xtuV2HHjbp8qpoefhaE6jDnFDBun_o_D-fA/viewform . As you will notice, you can provide preliminary information at this time and later update your registration with more details. For all UCLA events we ask that you try to avoid conflict with a campuswide #J18 event that is being planned for 5–7 p.m. in Ackerman.
Please forward this information to colleagues and students at UCLA and beyond so that they can join in #J18. For more information, contact Ananya Roy (Professor of Urban Planning and Social Welfare, Renee and Meyer Luskin Chair in Inequality and Democracy, UCLA) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
