San Diego Diplomacy Council: The Global Leadership Youth Program (Grades 9-12) Module 3: From Discrimination to Genocide: Racism & Systemic Inequality

The events of 2020 ushered in a racial reckoning across the globe. Black Lives Matter marches have drawn millions of demonstrators worldwide, protesting against the pervasive racial injustices that plague our societies. In many countries, structural discrimination and the legacies of slavery continue to blight the lives of minorities, while hate speech and hate crimes are on the rise. And as history shows us, when these currents aren’t opposed, governments can turn to genocide or ethnic cleansing as a way to unify and mobilize their supporters. This session explores the destructive effects of racism and systemic inequality in the U.S. and abroad as well as how governments and citizens can combat these injustices. 

July 18–22
8:30–11 a.m.
Led by the San Diego Diplomacy Council
