The 50th Reunion Committee


Voting Rights Under Attack: Countering Suppression Efforts - Panel Discussion Wed 5/12 7:00-8:30 PM EDT

We hosted a timely and lively Zoom session on the issue of attacks on voting rights underway in many states.  Panelists working on the front lines reported what they see day to day, what steps they are taking, and what steps we can take to help.  Winding up in a hopeful assessment for the future, panelists were inspirational in describing their creative and persistent actions to protect one of the core values of our democracy.   Moderated by classmate Judith Kauffman Baker.  More details including the recording link are here.


Past Symposia Events

The reunion committee set up a number of virtual events in spring 2020 to tide us over while we wait for another time to hold an in-person gathering.  More of these sessions are being arranged to help keep our spirits up and our friendships vibrant!

Multiple Zoom events were held during 2020 Commencement Week and the weeks following.  Most of the involved materials and session video recordings are available on the web pages listed below.

Following Commencement 2020, additional Symposia sessions are being scheduled. Involved materials and session video recordings are available on the web pages listed below.
