Social Justice Day 2017

  Social Justice Day 2017
  University of Maryland Stamp Union
  April 18, 2017

The campus is holding its first Social Justice Day on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, with the theme:

“Growing Social Justice for the Public Good”

The all-day event will involve faculty, staff and students from the entire College Park campus. In addition to a keynote speaker at 9 a.m., the day will center around two interactive sessions in which participants from all parts of campus will be able to demonstrate the many ways -- through research, teaching, and community involvement -- that the University of Maryland is committed to social justice. The day will end with a conversation, summary, and next steps from the day's interactions (3:30 - 5 p.m.).

This year, the day is being organized around five social justice themes:
  • Immigration in the 21st Century
  • Economic Development and Inequality
  • Environmental Justice
  • Creating Healthy Communities
  • Media and Inequality
