Castleton University presents two panels discussing racial allyship on Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. in Casella Theater.
This event will be moderated by Connor Cyrus, who joined Vermont Public in March 2021 as host and senior producer. Previously working as a reporter for WJAR in Providence, Rhode Island, he's passionate about journalism’s ability to shed light on complex or difficult topics, as well as giving voice to underrepresented communities.
Based on the 2021 program by Vermont Public, one panel will be comprised of BIPOC students and community members while the other is comprised of white students and community members who consider themselves allies.
This event aims to identify what allyship means to Vermont and to the Castleton community and will provide an opportunity for open and honest dialogue.
