Activism Planning Night
Wednesday, October 30th, 7:00 PM at Stone 217
Rather than hosting a discussion, we will be meeting to discuss future directions for the club. During this session we will brainstorm ideas, messages, slogans, and activities, protests, and/or demonstrations to make our voices heard.  Why speak up, you ask?  There are  many issues on campus worthy of pursuit.  The decision of which issues we tackle lies with you.  We will pick our battles and decide the best course of action for each.  We can do anything from counter-protests, chalking campaigns, or even put on events with other organizations.

Some current issues: The abortion debate is in full swing on campus; you’ve probably seen the misleading and inaccurate statements by pro-life preachers on campus. We could also plan activities to support our allies in the LGBTQ Student Association and the Episcopal Student Association.  We can publicize the effects religious privilege and examine the research on marginalization of non-theists on campus. The list goes on and on.  This is your chance to choose the club’s direction.  Come make your voices heard and bring suggestions for topics and activities.   Share what pisses you off.  Together we might just be able to do something about it.
