Truth and Reconciliation Panel

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

The newly created TRC Panel led by Professors Anne Bailey and Sharon Bryant of the Harriet Tubman Center for Freedom and Equity in partnership with President Harvey Stenger will be meeting several evenings in the spring semester 2021.


This is a research driven process based on restorative and procedural justice models. We welcome written and oral testimonies on issues related to race and ethnicity.  As a panel, we want to LISTEN to your experiences on these issues, hear your personal and professional experiences with an eye toward remedy and redress. To that end, we invite you to consider offering solution- oriented recommendations as you make your testimony.

The time period covered will be from the inception of the university in 1946 to present.  In terms of territory covered, the focus will be the university and campus community though we expect that there may be related testimonies about experiences in the wider community of the Southern Tier.  All individuals connected to the campus community are welcome to share their stories.  This includes students, staff, faculty, alumni, and others.

All sessions will be confidential and private.

WHAT: SIX confidential listening sessions; Race and ethnicity focus

WHO: Open to ALL members of the Binghamton community.
