Social Justice Quotes for May 2020 Enews

We may not have created the system, the inequity, but if we don’t change it, the system will be maintained.
Heard at the 2018 CABE Conference
A more rehumanized mathematics would depart from a purely logical perspective and invite students to draw upon other parts of themselves (e.g., voice, vision, touch, intuition).
Rochelle Gutiérrez
