Executive Orders & Resistance: Past, Present, and Future

  • Butler University, Jordan Hall 4600 Sunset Avenue, Room 141 Indianapolis, IN 46208 (map)

Unscalable legal walls have long existed from the mid-1800s until the 1960s that prevented many non-Europeans from entering the US. Join us as we provide a historical context for understanding recent Executive Orders that ban specific people from entering the US.

The session will seek to go beyond a sense of the immorality of recent Executive Orders and understand how they fit into a long history of “wall” building that excluded and/or isolated large communities/populations. This event is in the tradition of “Teach-ins” of the 60s to provide a factual foundation for fostering resistance.

This event is co-sponsored by Women4Change and hosted by the Inclusion & Civility Task Force.
