Indiana University faculty, staff, students, and extended community members celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day with the third annual Social Justice Conference. The conference included keynote speaker Thema Bryant, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and president of the American Psychological Association, a series of presentations and panel discussions, and music provided by the African American Choral Ensemble, as well as the presentation of the winners of the 2023 Building Bridges Award and the MLK Student Organization Grant.
The Building Bridges Award recognizes individuals and organizations who capture Dr. King’s vision, spirit, and leadership in ways both big and small – right here at IU and within communities across Indiana. One student and one additional community member (faculty, staff, local organization, etc.) from each campus and IU’s School of Medicine were recognized.
