Social Justice Hub members meet over pizza to discuss ideas.

Social Justice Hub

The Social Justice Hub provides purposeful out-of-classroom education through direct experience to further develop skills to engage in social justice work and to improve the quality of life for all. We accomplish this through Action Teams, events, and outreach and collaboration connections. You can sign up for our bimonthly newsletter here to get every-other week updates on what we have accomplished, what we are working on, and what we plan to do.
