UBW is engaging in a dynamic and groundbreaking partnership with Projecting All Voices at Arizona State University (ASU)!
Both UBW and Projecting All Voices are interested in discovering ways in which institutions can move beyond diversity initiatives and become organizations that lead in examining structural racism and its impact on our curriculums, programming, organizing and art-making practices.
