Weekly Virtual Segal Gatherings During COVID-19 Shutdown

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Fellows have met weekly or biweekly to connect, reengage with the Program, and create support systems during difficult times. Our following check-in times are below:

Monday October 5, 2020 1:00-1:30 PM EST: Join us for an informal check-in. We will be holding out conversation virtually through Zoom.

In recent weeks, conversations have created space for dialogue around issues of racism at all levels (individual through systemic), police brutality, and the importance of antiracist work, as well as how recent and ongoing issues and events, including the killings of Rayshard Brooks, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, are impacting our Fellows are the larger world.

To learn more about the ways the Segal Program has continued these efforts and conversations please see our anti-racism update page.


Community of Practice for politically-engaged Fellows are held every one-two months. If you are interested in facilitating future discussions please email Susie Flug-Silva at flugsilva@brandeis.edu. For a full list of previous meetings please visit our Community of Practice Resources Page.
