Change U: Social Movements in the Making
More than ever, connecting the various social justice efforts is crucial. The world is constantly confronted with issues of racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism and ableism, and it is important to see how these issues are interdependent. Doing justice work requires this kind of intersectional perspective.
Grand Valley State University students, faculty, staff as well as community members in the greater Grand Rapids area are invited to apply to participate in this free social justice training series. The purpose of Change U is to further strengthen social justice movements on and off campus by fostering cross-issue, intergenerational, and diverse partnerships between the GVSU community and social justice efforts throughout the area.
This Winter Semester, Change U welcomes Tim Wise, prominent anti-racist writer and speaker, author of White Like Me: Reflections on Race by a Privileged Son, Affirmative Action: Racial Preference in Black and White, Between Barack and a Hard Place: Racism and White Denial in the Age of Obama, and more.
This free training is made possible through a generous grant from Arcus Foundation Gay and Lesbian Fund and is co-sponsored by the GVSU Division of Inclusion and Equity.
