The Trump Era has seen a serious spike in bigotry at a time that the United States is becoming more ethnically diverse. In reaction, many people are currently engaged in public activism to show their opposition to this rise of intolerance toward African Americans, Jews, and immigrants, particularly Latinos and blacks. The panel of diverse voices will discuss an array of issues that, ideally, can lead to the formulation of timely research foci and teaching strategies for ethnic geography.
