The Longhorn Center for Community Engagement is kicking off its next Front Porch Gathering (FPG) series on Tuesday, December 4th with a dialogue on disproportionate disciplinary action in schools. Attendees will help us build a guidebook that identifies tools to navigate discriminatory practices and assemble resources to support Black and Latinx students in Central Texas.
If you are interested in community engagement, equity, social issues and social justice, we would love to have you as a volunteer! Please review below for more information about FPG and event logistics. Should you want to volunteer, please click here.
What is a Front Porch Gathering?
Front Porch Gathering represents UT’s open door to the Austin community, providing time and space for community collaboration. The monthly gathering works to address issues of equity, disparity and access through active engagement and connects UT research and resources with community organizations and members.
