In Response to our Current Societal Crisis, Student Shares Writings on Inequities, Violence: The Work of Professor Wallace

Hi Dr. Wallace,

In light of recent violence from law enforcement and the conversations happening surrounding systemic racism and cultural understanding, I began thinking of the readings from HBSS 4114 (Competence with Multicultural Populations: Research and Practice). I've had many discussions with friends, family members, and acquaintances on these topics. 

I wanted to reach out and ask for your permission to distribute the attached PDF of readings from HBSS 4114 that you wrote, to those who have expressed interest to me in the want to better understand racial injustice, and how to approach these topics with better cultural understanding. I think they are incredibly informative and helpful, but did not want to distribute your writing without your permission, in case you prefer it be purchased. 

Thank you,

Alison Trainor
