Working to provide students with the voice and learning environment they deserve.

This communication is a way to stay connected as Social Justice advocates. Through resource sharing, we are able to learn and build capacity around issues of Social Justice. This also allows the opportunity to highlight the great work individuals and buildings are doing related to student voice.
