PLU for Ferguson
The upsetting Ferguson decision and its events will not go unaddressed by Pacific Lutheran University. PLU takes action in the controversial uproar.
An open community forum dedicated to processing recent events in Ferguson, honoring lives lost to racialized violence, and supporting action oriented responses will be held. Join fellow students, faculty and staff in the Scandinavian Cultural Center, this Thursday, Dec. 4 at 4 p.m. This event will offer an opportunity to learn more about the dynamics of community trauma, resistance, and mobilization. In addition, uplifting voices and stories of those individuals and communities impacted by racialized violence will be spoken.
This event is sponsored by The Women’s Center, The Diversity Center and Center for Community Engagement & Service. It will be hosted by the dCenter.
