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.
