Seton Call to Action: Black Lives Matter

Seton Speaks

As part of Seton’s commitment to confronting racism and pushing for equality among all people, Seton launched a new initiative called “Seton Speaks” in October. This includes a series of weekly events meant to give our Black students and staff members the opportunity to speak about their experiences; to educate our students and staff members about the realities and impact of racism and injustice; and to ensure that Seton is living out its belief that Black Lives Matter. Activities rotate on a four-week cycle and include topic-oriented sharing sessions, during which student leaders and staff members use the book Interrupting Racism to guide discussions; open discussion sessions, during which students and staff members are able to talk to one another about their experiences; presentations by invited speakers; and activities that help members of the Seton community learn more about aspects of racism.

  • How does Seton Speaks work?

    Each Seton student is assigned to a small group of approximately 10 people to include students, staff, and members of Seton’s Board of Directors. The sessions are different every week. Sometimes, we will have a circle discussion on a topic; sometimes we will have a professional speaker; sometimes we have an educational session, and sometimes we have free discussion times.  The agenda will be given the agenda in advance. Our educational sessions are led by Jessy Molina, Molina Consulting.
