Social Justice Meeting 10/8

I wanted to fill you guys in on the first meet-up of the the Social Justice resource center at the UofC http://sjuofc.wordpress.com/ It's pretty much just that, a resource center, a place for RSOs to collectively organize projects/campaigns, etc. It's a good way to find out what other SJ RSOs are up to and how to better collaborate with one another.

The first meeting will be Wed. Oct 8th 5:30-6:30, in the RSO Conference Room of 5710.

I and at least one other MEChA rep will be in attendance but of course more are welcome.

If you have any questions feel free to direct them to Hannah Jacoby hwjacoby@uchicago.edu
