2018-2019 CLIP Event:
June 6th, 2019 at 6:30 - 8:30 PM in the Unity Suite of The Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center
This two-hour event on Prison Abolition in the Pacific Northwest will showcase student projects, presentations, and performances related to the theme of the 2018-2019 CLIP lecturer series on Critical Justice Education. We intend this event to provide an inclusive environment that brings together faculty, staff, students, and community members. The ECC has historically been a site for disenfranchised populations to assemble, share ideas, and, most importantly, feel safe doing so. CHID students come from a diverse range of backgrounds, from formerly incarcerated to undocumented students, many of whom are first generation, queer and people of color. Moreover, student’s projects will be focused on questions of how to advance social and economic justice in and through abolitionist organizing in the PNW.
