This virtual event, which took place the week of the 2020 USA elections, was an intergenerational conversation and collective reflection with five justice and equity leaders of the Oregon State University community. The event was described as such: "Remaining connected has never been more important and necessary in these times. The panel discussion is intended as a moment to gather and reflect, allow for critical conversations to emerge, and center care as we make meaning of the election amidst multiple pandemics. The intended audience are current students. We will make a targeted effort to outreach with student leaders. This will, however, be open to the public and advertised widely." The five panelists included Tamara Lash (she/her), OSU Alumna ‘20, Social Justice Program Coordinator for YWCA of Greater Portland; Andres Larios Brown (He/They), former Multiracial Aikido Facilitator and Marriage and Family Therapist at OSU. Currently researching Familial Queer Identity processes for Religiously Conservative Cultures, and Diversity Training in Marriage and Family Therapy Programs; Larry Roper (he/him), OSU Professor Emeritus of Language, Culture, and Society; Damoni Wright, Associate Vice Provost for Engagement & Inclusion and ED Student Experiences & Engagement at OSU; and Charlene Martinez, Associate Director of Student Experiences & Engagement at OSU.
