Activism Events

The Center for Diversity and Social Justice (CDSJ) sponsors a variety of events throughout the year to heighten awareness of social justice issues and challenges. Some of the most popular events are listed below. 

Activist in Residence

The most powerful activists in the world are people who are unashamedly themselves. Every year CDSJ sponsors an Activist in Residence – usually a nationally recognized leader in the field of social justice. Our Activist in Residence spends a week on campus during the month of October, working in classrooms, residence halls and other venues to promote an organic approach to addressing issues of diversity, equality and social justice and presenting opportunities for activism in daily living.

Community Outreach

Every local community offers a resource for mutual learning and activism. Through the academic year, CDSJ students and staff explore multiculturalism and social justice with Selinsgrove School District, businesses and various social service agencies.

Speak Up

Speak Up uses “guerrilla theater” to confront current social challenges. Students write, direct and act in scenes staged on campus, calling out bystander behavior and showing the need for active change. 

Upcoming Events
