Participate in the USD Social Justice Lab

Social Justice Lab 2017

Interested in social justice and want to learn how to achieve sustainable social change? Are you passionate about a particular social justice issue but don’t know just how to tackle it?

The University of San Diego, through the support and co-sponsorship of on-campus groups such as Associated Students, the USD Changemaker Hub, the Karen and Tom Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness and Social Action and the United Front Multicultural Center (UFMC), invites all USD students to attend and take part in the Social Justice Lab from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18 at Loma Hall's Cymer Ideation Space on the first floor.

This is a workshop that can help students take their first step — or most recent step — toward becoming a Changemaker. It’s a one-day hands-on experience that allows students to use their passion to address social justice issues. In this interactive co-learning space, participants will learn key tools to accelerate putting these ideas into action.

During Saturday’s workshop, participants will work with a USD community partner, YALLA, a local organization that utilizes soccer and academic programs to motivate refugee and immigrant youth to become college students.

It’s free to register for the USD Social Justice Lab, but the deadline to register is Wednesday, Feb. 15, 5 p.m. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided as well as materials. Participants must commit to the entire experience with no late arrivals or early departures.
