Students Speak Out Against Hate
On Wednesday, September 20th, the Social Justice Initiative, in collaboration with UIC’s Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change, hosted a lunch discussion at the Jane Addams Hull House Museum called “Students Speak Out Against Hate.” The discussion included a group of diverse voices from the UIC Student Action, Native American Student Organization, Students for Justice in Palestine, Fearless Undocumented Alliance, the Inclusive Collective. Students reflected on how each of their communities have been affected by racist and sexist policies. This included reflections on the rescinding of DACA and on Native American erasure at the University level. The panel also offered suggestions as to how to get involved on campus to increase efforts of resistance.
