Although Black History Month is coming to a close, Packer's work on anti-racism is ongoing. We hope you will take a minute to update yourself on the latest by visiting our anti-racism page.
We are also holding our annual Packer in Action Day next week. Packer in Action Day is a day where faculty, staff, and students from all grades discuss visibility, inclusion & racial justice. During this time, we have two unique opportunities for you to be more involved with us at Packer!
On Wednesday, March 2, from 5-7 PM all alumni are invited to the opening reception of the Eric Lee ’11 photography exhibit "Finding Our Place" in the Shen Gallery. Eric Lee is a photojournalist whose work has been featured in The Atlantic, Bloomberg, National Geographic, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, NPR, and others. Some of his recent work has highlighted the experience of being an Asian American in the current political atmosphere. He will be visiting us at Packer for the opening of his exhibit. Join him and other alumni for light refreshments. Proof of vaccination will be required to attend. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Thursday, March 3 at 10:30 AM all alumni are invited to the virtual talk of the Packer in Action Day's keynote speaker Dylan Marron. Dylan Marron hosts & produces Conversations with People Who Hate Me, a podcast where he calls up the people behind negative comments on the internet. The show was selected as a Podcast Pick by USA Today & The Guardian, named "the timeliest podcast" by FastCompany, and won a Webby Award. Dylan’s TED Talk, “Empathy is Not Endorsement,” has been viewed millions of times worldwide. He will be speaking to Packer students about community and his work. RSVP at email@example.com.
