Social Justice Awareness Week


Do you think that you REALLY know what Affirmative Action is? Do you think that it is affecting you and your campus now? Do you know that there is someone coming to campus who thinks your voice doesn’t count? He doesn’t just show up anywhere. There are 47 states left unvisited and he chose YOURS.

Join the ASM Diversity Committee during our Social Justice Awareness Week demystifying Affirmative Action and its role on the UW Madison campus. Affirmative Action Day is December 7th @ 7:00 pm, 1221 Humanities.
