We are pleased to announce that Longwood University will be hosting its 4th Annual Social Justice in Action Leadership Summit on February 21st, 2015. Please join us for this empowering experience! This year we are excited to have social justice educators Vernon Wall and Paul Gordon Brown join us for this exciting experience. Both individuals have a considerable amount of experience working with students.
Our mission for this event is to motivate and empower students to use their experiences as citizen leaders to advocate for social justice and equity on campus and throughout their respective communities. We hope to assist students with understanding the meaning and scope of social justice, deepening the understanding of the dynamics of privilege and oppression at the individual, group, cultural, and systems levels, identify ways students can engage in promoting social justice and equity on campus and their respective communities, explain how values of citizen leadership promote social justice, and engage in meaningful dialogue with a variety of educators who are similarly committed to equity.
