Session 7: Sunday, June 3rd: 2:00 - 3:50pm
Description/Abstract of your Event:
On March 14, 2018 we participated in the first of many student led walkouts regarding gun violence and other forms of harm unique to students of color. As student activists living in a fast paced society where ideas are constantly clashing, speaking up for these matters that we feel are pertinent to our livelihood is essential. Analyzing the way that these movements played out, particularly their exclusionary nature is important to progress socially. Making sure that movements like these aren’t just one time things and ensuring their continuation is vital to addressing the nature of the anxieties formed and forged at the root of these causes.
