Inspired by the current movement for Black Lives, I cofounded the Anti-Racism Action Committee in the history department. Our goal was to improve the material lives of graduate students from marginalized backgrounds. As a group, we cosponsored a series of workshops titled, "BIPOC Graduate Students and the Publishing Process," with the Texas Career Engagement Center (Spring 2021).
