The Social Justice Activists Forum at Cabrini College brought students together from various campuses to discuss the success of their social justice projects and to combine their efforts in hopes of creating a greater impact.
“It takes many people and organizations working together to make a positive change in the world,” Dr. Mary Laver, director of International Partnerships, said.
Students from Eastern, Cabrini, Villanova and Immaculata all attended on Sept. 29 in hopes of spreading awareness for causes such as Fair Trade, Fair Foods and the ever pressing problems involving genocide in places such as Darfur.
Each campus shared their best programs. Eastern’s project, SPEAK, reflects a commitment to faith, reason and justice beyond the boundaries of the campus. They’ve introduced Fair Trade food on campus and have dedicated time to spreading the idea that people should start ‘living simply.’
