Join Mexican Students de Aztlán (MeSA), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), Union for Puerto Rican Students (UPRS), and Native American and Indigenous Student Organization (NAISO) this Spring 2023 Semester for an OPEN MIC!

Don’t miss out on the remarkable talented poets as they share their own poetic words on this month’s theme:  Feeding the revolution towards anti-colonial futures

Guiding Questions:

  • What does liberation look like to you? What fuels your activism/revolution?
  • What are ways to avoid becoming the oppressors in the fight for liberation of all peoples?
  • How does education tie into shaping how we understand revolution and liberation?
