On Tuesday, 4/18/2017, members of MIT and the broader local community will pause our everyday activities and devote the day to engaging with the political, economic, and social challenges facing us today. We intend this day of action to be open to all, representing the full diversity of our community. Events will include lectures, panel discussions, workshops, and hands-on activities.
