The College celebrated Native American Heritage Month on November 18 by welcoming guest speaker Gloria Lopez, Esq., an expert on indigenous peoples’ rights.
Ms. Lopez, a native of Belize who is of Mayan heritage, spoke about the effects of international borders on indigenous people, and how to advocate for their heritage, rights, and practices. She is a former Fulbright Chair in Human Rights and Social Justice at the University of Ottawa and former Chief Diversity Officer at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
The event, which took place in the Gallagher Room and was streamed on Zoom, was part of a series of public forums presented by the Office of Community and Government Relations. You can watch the Zoom recording and view the photo gallery.
