Once a month, a knowledgeable moderator will guide a Zoom meetup for ULA members on the current month's topic.

August discussion: What have you learned about land acknowledgments? What questions do you have? What resources can you share?

All year long, ULA members are invited to participate in an open, ongoing discussion in the #edi channel in ULA's Slack workspace. Ask questions, share thoughts, and record your participation in the monthly Take Action challenge. Join the discussion.
