Description

We (Amaranto Arts Collective, CERRU, Campus Coalition for Inclusion, Hillel, Michael Harrington Center, Muslim Student Association, SEEK, SODA, and TAFT Institute for Government) vehemently feel that during this time in history it is important for all of us to work together in our capacities to stop the spread of intolerance and hate. We will be offering semester long programming to provide students and community members with accessible stories and histories of ordinary courageous organizing in the face of racism, sexism, imperialism, ableism, nationalism and so forth.

Sessions will include (1) a history of, (2) know your rights component, and (3) information about organizing current issues as legislation changes.
