The Office of Equity and Inclusion sponsors this event, which was organized by student workers Julia Peters ’24 and Gloria Castro-Jimenez ’24. These two students received a scholarship from Kären Rasmussen, who created the scholarship in honor of Pastor Kara Baylor, Carthage’s campus pastor who passed away last year. Pastor Baylor cared deeply about various social justice issues. This summit is to honor her legacy through educating others on these inequities in our world.
