FC Summit to Raise Awareness of Social Justice Issues
The Ethnic Studies Department is teaming up with FC S.T.O.M.P. and Latina Leadership Network for the inaugural Fullerton College Social Justice Summit on Nov. 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the quad and the 200 Building. This one-day event brings together community members to explore various social justice issues.
“The goal for this summit is to proactively share and generate knowledge to inspire action by drawing from our lived experiences which are often devalued and marginalized in mainstream institutions,” said Ethnic Studies Professor Amber Rose González.
The summit’s itinerary includes workshops, presentations and roundtable discussions. Participants will also have the opportunity to receive advice and support during a resource fair and buy from an artisan market. Student clubs will also be selling breakfast and lunch.
Starting off the event is keynote speaker Jennicet Gutiérrez, a trans-Latina activist and leader of Familia: TQLM, a national organization that addresses, organizes, educates and advocates for Latino/a LGBTQ issues. Closing entertainment includes Cihuatl Ce, a feminist Indigenous hip-hop emcee and Remi Kanazi, poet, writer and organizer whose latest work is Before the Next Bomb Drops: Rising Up From Brooklyn to Palestine.
This event is free to the community and interested participants are encouraged to sign up on the S.T.O.M.P. website by Nov. 16. For more information about this event, contact González at (714) 992-7504 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
