About this Event
101 Lawrence Wayhttps://clas.ucdenver.edu/histories-and-legacies-displacement-and-removal#tours-630
This two-day interactive symposium will explore the University of Colorado Denver’s histories of displacement and removal of Indigenous and Hispanic/Latinx communities. The event will provide a space where participants can engage with the campus’s past and present and strengthen on‐going efforts to construct mechanisms to acknowledge, confront, and commemorate the forced relocations of communities of color that allowed for the existence of the Auraria Campus. The hope is that such efforts will ensure the continued sharing of Denver, Auraria, and campus histories and promote broader understanding of the impact of displacement and removal. The symposium will give participants the opportunity to collaborate to move forward in educational, meaningful, and transformative ways with the goal of creating a more inclusive campus that faces its past and is mindful of its connection with current communities. The symposium will include academic panels, personal testimony, open discussions, walking tours, documentary film, and more.
