EWC celebrates Social Justice Month

As part of its diversity initiative, EWC is focusing on learning about and raising awareness of social justice for the month of March.  Activities for social justice month include creation of visual displays, providing t-shirts with a quote by Martin Luther King, Jr., and attending the Shepard Symposium for Social Justice in Laramie March 28-31.  Social justice month activities are being co-sponsored by the Diversity Committee, the EWC Student Senate and the Gay Straight Alliance, whose advisors are working toward a hate-free, tolerance rich campus to achieve true diversity.
One display is on exhibit in the Verl Petsch Jr. Activities Center across from the Student Services office. It is a collection of 3D sculptures with quotes and images with the theme of “dismantling boxes”. Students used card board box bases as their means of communicating messages about social justice.
