Student voices on social justice sought for forum to be held Nov. 19

A Social Justice Forum will be held via Zoom Thursday, Nov. 19, from 6 to 7 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Higher Education Diversity and Inclusion Team (HEDIT), comprising representatives from Ripon College, Marian University, Moraine Park Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Fond Du Lac Campus.

Student voices especially are encouraged to address concerns related to critical social justice issues and action. This conversation will be the groundwork for a spring 2021 HEDIT initiative using creative expression and healing arts for vital community building. Through social justice art, including painting, illustration, sculpture, music, video, spoken word and dance, HEDIT will seek to therapeutically express difficult emotions, activism, community, healing and further advocacy for social justice.

HEDIT committee members representing Ripon College are Jean Rigden, director of teacher education, and Maria Mendoza-Bautista, director of the Center for Diversity and Inclusion.

Registration and access to forum links can be found at ripon.edu/forum.
