It's no secret college campuses have long been center of creative thought and passionate discussion when it comes to social justice and social change. Sierra College's Rocklin Campus will be just such a hub when it hosts the seventh Social Justice Week October 7-11. The event is open to the public and free of charge.
The focus of this year’s event is Access to Education and will take on a number of issues—locally, nationally, and globally. Topics include socio-economic status and education, race and education, immigration and the DREAM Act, Title IX, STEM and underrepresentation in education, veterans’ access and barriers, and more! Speakers, discussions, films and student projects will bring the topics to life. Other events will include faculty presentations, student poetry slams and a student diversity training hosted by the Beyond Diversity Club.
Events begin at 9:30 am and run through the evening daily. Directions and maps to the campus can also be found on this website. There is a $3 parking fee on campus. Parking permits can be purchased at dispensers located throughout the parking lot. Call (916) 660-8068 for additional information.
