Walk the Walk Week is more than a week; it's an invitation

Walk the Walk Week is more than a week to recognize Notre Dame’s efforts to be a welcoming and inclusive campus — it’s an invitation to each of us to make it more so.
In September, NDPD, in collaboration with Black students, released the Equity in Policing report. In a Notre Dame Stories podcast, Keri Kei Shibata, police chief; Mike Seamon, vice president for Campus Safety and University Operations; and Matty Aubourg '21, a member of the Black Student Association, discuss what led to the report. Their discussion embodies Walk the Walk Week.

Recently Brown offered a FaithND Gospel Reflection in the context of Black History Month and as a member of the Notre Dame family. He reflected a bit longer in a conversation with NDWorks.
