Making a Just Society | Additional MIT Resources 

 

 

"Today we need everyone who says they care, not just to care but to do their part to fight the injustices that threaten to destroy us all, that threaten to destroy people who look like me. If you say you care about the injustice in this nation and in this world, you have a role to play.”

— DiOnetta Jones Crayton, Associate Dean, Office of the Vice Chancellor; Director of the Office of Minority Education
