Miss the deadline to submit your session proposal for Social Justice Day? Never fear – today’s deadline has been extended to Friday, March 7th to give more individual students, student groups, staff, and faculty the opportunity to share the issues they are passionate about with the Wesleyan community.
Social Justice Day is meant as an opportunity for student activists to collaboratively engage with each other and with their professors on issues that relate to social justice and social change.
If you know a professor who might be interested in an opportunity to share an outside interest that they haven’t been able to relate in the classroom, let them know!
WSA Prez Matt Ball ’08 writes about the nuts and bolts:
Social Justice Day is really a succession of sessions – anyone can apply to put on an hour session in which they have a discussion, give a lecture, or do something else creative. Because they’ll all be organized together, there will be spillover from event to event, bringing in different people into different sessions in order to foster the kind of “message outreach” that we’d like to achieve. There will also be a lunch with a directed discussion, perhaps splitting into smaller groups to discuss different issues. In addition, groups can bring outside speakers if they’d like, and we have funding that we’re willing to tap into to help groups fund their events.
