            In the midst of nonstop racialized violence and institutional assaults against minoritized communities, it is no wonder that those committed to fighting racism can sometimes feel personally overwhelmed. The Society of American Law Teachers (SALT) turned its attention to this important topic at a recent Webinar. Law school leaders and a resiliency expert offered their insights and advice to law professors engaged in anti-racism work.

            The webinar, “Engaging in Anti-Racism Work for the Long Haul: Avoiding Fatigue and Burnout” was the latest in a series of Social Justice Webinars sponsored by SALT this year. The event featured Dean Mario Barnes, Toni Rembe Dean & Professor of Law, University of Washington School of Law; Nikita Gupta, GRIT Program Director, UCLA Bruin Resource Center and Carla Pratt, Dean & Professor of Law, Washburn University School of Law. More than 130 people attended the event. A video of the event is available here. Panelists explained why law school professors are in a critical position to combat racism, and talked about the importance of self-care in confronting injustice for the long haul.

The event was part of SALT’s Social Justice in Action Webinar Series. The next webinar, “Anti-racist Hiring Practices” will be held Friday, Oct. 16, 2020 at 3 p.m. EST. Registration is available at:  https://bit.ly/307SZ6M
