April 7, 4-6pm
This event is co-sponsored by the Batalden Applied Ethics Program and Augsburg Student Day Government (ASDG).
This co-sponsored panel event will feature David Stovall (Professor of Criminology, Law and Justice at the University of Illinois, Chicago) and student panelists. Critical race theorist and abolition scholar Professor Stovall invites us into “a radical imaginary” that “challenges us to think about the world as it is while committing to a process that systemically changes it” (2018, p. 53). Students who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) in traditionally White institutions (TWIs) must navigate a covert White supremacist infrastructure (Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence, 2005) and a White milieu in higher education (for example, “White talk moves,” see Finders & Kwame-Ross, 2020). This proposed panel seeks to move us toward abolition democracy (DuBois, 1998; Davis, 2005) using Ella Baker’s participatory democracy model.
For us to embrace abolition democracy as a TWI, we must all be held accountable. Indeed, abolitionist Bettina Love (2019) has argued for accountability: “Abolitionist teaching asks us to question the piece of the oppressor that lives in us all” (p. 122).“ Thus, there is a moral imperative to use abolition praxis – defined as a “practice theory of change” (Roberts, 2019) – to guide our collective “radical imaginary.”

Augsburg Asian Student Association (AASA), Hmong Women Together (HWT), and Pan Asian Student Services(PASS) recognizes that anti-AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islanders) prejudice is only one form of systematic racism that continues to spread in our nation. Together, we appreciate the outpour of outreach and attention from Administration, peers and allies in support of the recent events in Georgia last week and our daily lived experiences.
We hope that there will be work in solidarity from Augsburg to take a stand against the structures that perpetuate and fuel discrimination for all BIPOC and specifically recently more heightened assaults on Pan-Asians in our communities, and to identify actionable ways to address this and all forms of prejudice, stigmatization, and racism.
We hereby recommend for you to join us in the following spaces at Augsburg to continue these conversations and to help us come together in community:
