    First Diversi-Tea of the School Year Discusses Social Justice

    The Equity and Inclusion Team hosted the first Divesi-Tea of the school year on November 8. Students and faculty filled the four tables in Kaltenbacher Hall to discuss social justice, defining it as, “the concept that communities or societies should be constructed in such a way that all its members are physically and psychologically safe, experience equity in regard to power and access to resources, and have the ability to fully participate in that community or society.”
     
    From there, students discussed works against social justice and works toward social justice, writing their ideas on a post-it that could be hung under the respective sections.
     
    The meeting closed with the group discussing what actions could be taken at NA for more social justice as well as how one can be an ally.
