Why We’re Here

Historically, public colleges and universities have played an important role as agents for grassroots activism and social change. At Real Talk, our hope is to channel this energy and:

  • establish consistent opportunities for nuanced conversations

  • elevate and engage the voices of those seeking social justice

  • promote safe, productive activism for our rising generations

  • raise awareness and understanding of anti-racist, social justice work

  • model complex conversations with positive outcomes
