Many students experience diversity for the first time when they become a member of a college community. This is an ideal time to engage this group and provide a means for them to take an active role promoting acceptance, inclusion and respect for all people.

This workshop will provide students with an understanding of a new, innovative method of creating social change, and develop their capacity to implement that change on the college campus and in their community. Participants will enhance their appreciation of social justice issues and how people experience injustice across different identities; they will also receive how-to action steps to become leaders and make social change happen, empowering them to have real-time application of the lessons learned.
