Change U 2015/2016 is a free social justice program designed to connect GVSU faculty, staff and students with members of the community around issues of social justice.
Participants will develop strategies for how to organize effectively during electoral cycles. The discussion will include an analysis of the dynamics at play that pull us to abandon movement building in favor of representative electoral politics. We will also examine how social justice gains in US history have or have not been linked to electoral politics. Participants will develop an understanding of how to organize both within the framework of electoral politics and autonomously.
Date: Thursday, March 31st
Time: 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Location: 2215/2216 Kirkhof Center
