Social Justice Leadership Conference Session Proposals

SLJC-3

From the Student Activities and Leadership Development (SALD) Office:

You are invited to be a part of the 6th Annual Social Justice Leadership Conference. The mission of The Social Justice Leadership Conference (SJLC) is a collaborative effort which provides a space for students, student groups, community members, alumni, faculty, and staff to discuss social justice and to learn and refine leadership skills. SJLC seeks to empower its participants to create change by applying the skills and knowledge acquired during the conference.

A key part of the SJLC are the breakout sessions, where students, student groups, alumni, community members, faculty and staff facilitate sessions in their area of interest, expertise, or passion. Sessions focus on leadership skills that may be applied to any social movement and on the many manifestations of injustice and how participants can be involved in creating change. To view past conference sessions click HERE. SJLC provides participants with resources and opportunities for engagement on campus, in Middletown, in Connecticut and across the globe.

This year’s conference theme is Access, Equity, and Inclusion and will be held on Saturday, October 26th. We encourage you to submit a session proposal and to be part of this amazing day! Session proposals are being accepted until Friday, September 27, 2013 at 4pm. Click HERE for the link to submit a proposal.

VegOut Mindful Meal

From Manon Lefèvre ’14:

BuHo and WesFRESH invite you to a combined Mindful Meal and VegOut
this Friday evening! We’ll be cooking up a gigantic delicious
vegetarian, community meal cooked from locally sourced ingredients.
The mindful meal is an opportunity to thoughtfully reflect on the
processes that bring good food to our plates and beyond, considering
our meal as a part of much larger food system. We will take the time
to appreciate this holistic approach to thinking about food from farm
to fork to waste, all facets of the food movement represented on
campus. It’s a celebration of good food and good people!

For this VegOut we’ll be selling tickets in Usdan this week for $4 –
we’re hoping to make enough money to keep VegOut self-sustainable, so
contributions are appreciated. Please bring your own utensils and
plates!

This meal is co-sponsored by Buddhist House, Farm House, Out House,
Earth House, WesFRESH, and SALD

When: Friday, April 26th, 6:30 – 8pm
Where: Buddhist House
Cost: $4
