Calling all educators, activists, program directors and students! Please signup, attend, and share this exciting event with everyone.
Everyday, we teach in the classroom, educate in the community, or organize in our institutions to create positive change. To celebrate our accomplishments and continued efforts to create change and address social injustices, I invite to join us for a program called "With Liberty & Hip-Hop For All," a two-part series March 27-28 that showcases how various art forms can celebrate, recognize, and push us to create positive change in our communities. Come to any or all of our programs. All are FREE and open to the public.
This series is brought to you by the UA's Justice Education Diversity Internship (JEDI) program and sponsored by the UA Residence Life Social Justice Program, Africana Studies Department, Women's Resource Center, Disability Resource Center, Confluencenter, African American Student Affairs, Asian Pacific American Student Affairs, Chicano/a Hispano Student Affairs, Native American Student Affairs, LGBTQ Affairs and the UA Student Services Fee.
