Robinson, a 19-year-old African-American man, was shot and killed March 6, 2015, on Madison's Near East Side by Madison Police Department officer Matt Kenny. Ozanne concluded that the "tragic and unfortunate death was the result of lawful use of deadly police force," and that no charges would be brought. (Photo by Jeff Miller/UW-Madison)

The event was designed to offer students the chance to strategize with peers, connect with supporters and allies, and strengthen the student movement for racial justice at UW-Madison. After a brief introduction, workshop participants broke into one of three race-alike caucus groups to discuss how their personal identities impact their experience of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
