Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his iconic speech during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963. He called for civil and economic rights and an end to racism in the United States. 58 years later, let us reflect on the status of Dr. King's dream.
We have created a Google Jamboard and invite the campus community to participate by adding a sticky note and/or photo on the status of the dream. Should you choose to participate in this activity, we ask that you first watch a short instructional video and the full iconic speech below. Participating in the Jamboard will require you to log-in with your UCI Gmail account as it is restricted to UCI accounts only.
While participating in the Jamboard activity, we ask that you adhere to the following community agreements:
Recognize your positionality and intersectional identities. Check your privileges.
Respect the sacredness of our virtual space and its community members.
Understand that everyone is collectively learning, unlearning, and growing.
Seek to understand and assume good intent.
Recognize and honor emotional labor.
Be mindful that everyone has different levels of consciousness.
Own your experience and use “I" statements.
Challenge the idea not the person.
Be comfortable with the uncomfortable. Expect discomfort.
Be mindful of inclusive language.
Embrace the idea that healing and growth are not linear.
Use content and trigger warnings when appropriate.
Amplify voices at the margins.
Practice self-care and communal care.
Please be mindful of UCI's Principles of Community which can be found here. Posts containing content that conflict with these practices (including hate speech, personal threats, inciting violence or inappropriate imagery) will be removed.
