IPSL@ Mount Saint Vincent to Host Advocacy Research Day
Riverdale, N.Y. – IPSL @ Mount Saint Vincent will present its second annual Advocacy Research Day on March 30 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., a full-day event exploring research as a form of advocacy on behalf of organizations working toward social, economic, and racial justice.

Perry of the Ramapough Lenape Nation, who will speak about the ethics of research with regards to indigenous populations.
