Dear Campus Community:

JOIN US March 2 through 7, 2020, for the 26th Annual Social Justice Summit hosted by the HSU MultiCultural Center! The theme this year is “Demanding radical reform: Justice now!!!" The Social Justice Summit is a space that challenges and questions the dominant narratives that have been instilled into our minds and bodies. Historically, the Summit has been a weekend of learning and growth, where attendees have the opportunity to use different forms of expression that further their understanding of Social Justice.

This year has proven to be a year of major destruction, where certain human beings were treated as inferior and lives were lost -- this is our reality. The reality is a small percentage of society disproportionately holds the most wealth and power. The reality is our public education, as well as our higher education, is designed to make us content and complicit with this reality by teaching us not to question, resist, or disrupt. The reality is elitist tools, like discrimination of all forms, secure elitists’ wealth and power by oppressing our ability to question, resist, and disrupt. Most importantly, the reality is that our society has never changed for us. The reality is, We changed it for us. It is up to us to continue to question, resist, and disrupt the hegemonic ideologies, processes, and systems that oppress us all.

Interested in presenting a workshop or facilitation of a panel?
