The impact of systemic injustice is woven into our lives. "Cup of Culture" is a forum centered around opening a dialogue space for community members of PLNU to engage in meaningful, challenging, and urgent conversations about diversity, inclusion, justice, and reconciliation and all that it entails. This forum seeks to challenge the PLNU community to explore our identity (racial, ethnicity, nationality, ability, gender, etc.), understand the experiences of others, critically identify social systems of oppression, and to work towards living a more socially just life.
This monthly event creates space to learn and discuss these issues with curated content, expert speakers, and facilitated conversation. We believe that we can come together in civil discourse about what makes us different so we can move forward united. This brand new program is a co-sponsored event from the offices of Multicultural and International Student Services and the Center for Justice & Reconciliation.
Hosted once a month during the academic year, 6 times per year, the sponsorship of this speaker series will help us enhance the quality of speakers we bring to campus and the community.
