Community Conversation – Advocacy & Activisim: Using Your Freedoms For Action

September 10, 2019 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Free

How can you use your freedoms to support the positive advancement of specific causes and to represent the concern of others within a system (i.e., advocacy) and/or to bring about social and political change outside of systems (i.e., activism)?

Come and hear from Wheaton community members who are successfully engaged in advocacy and activism work on and off campus. Topics for this conversation will include:

  • different approaches for effective advocacy and activism
  • leadership skills for advocacy and activist work
  • opportunities to engage in advocacy and activism work as a student

Refreshments immediately following this event in Wooley Room.  

This community conversation is part of our campus-wide Three Freedoms theme. This program is sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA), the Scholars At Risk (SAR) Committee, the Center for Social Justice & Community Impact (SJCI), and the Office of the Provost. Contact: Peony Fhagen: Assoc. Provost for Diversity & Faculty Development.
