Beyond Kony: Student Activism in Vancouver

Is it easier to rally support for an international cause than for a local issue? Is the phrase ‘slacktivism’ a fair and accurate assessment of students on our campus? What role does social media play? How should non-profits create meaningful opportunities for young people to engage with the community?

The panelists who will tackle these questions include Prof. Chris Erickson, Dept. of Political Science, Victoria Capron, 5 Days for the Homeless, and AJ Koehn, Student Engagement and Social Media.

Date: March 28
Time: 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
