12/5 & 12/12: Shine Student Presentations Free on Zoom!
We hope you've been enjoying our ongoing Shine Student Series! We have two more amazing presentations coming up in the next few weeks.
Queer and Criminalized: How the Carceral System Harms LGBTQ+ Students This presentation serves as an analysis of what is the carceral system, how it affects LGBTQ+, and disproportionately BIPOC, students, and how it can be eradicated. A facilitated discussion will act as an engagement activity to further examine this topic. Dec. 5 at 3 p.m. on Zoom
