Change U is a social justice program offered through the Milton E. Ford LGBT Resource Center at Grand Valley State University. What is unique about Change U is its approach to social justice, in that it looks at the following:
Change U consists of mutual and applied teaching and learning facilitated through large group presentation, small group discussion, skill building/sharing, group brainstorming, and the development of strategies and tactics to resist systemic injustice. This social justice program uses a relational organizing model, which promotes community building and learning from the lived experiences of all who participate. Valuing our deep ties to the community, Change U is free and available to GVSU students, faculty and staff, as well as community members from West Michigan. We seek to develop a critical analysis in order to envision the kind of world we want to live in, to practice that vision in how we organize, and to struggle together for collective liberation.
