Equiss: A Social Justice Experience
Equiss is a 3-day social justice retreat from May 21-23, 2013 for undergraduate students from across the nation who want to understand systems of oppression, privilege, identity development, and take action to create a more fair and just world. Equiss is offered through The University of Arizona to educate students on how to positively and effectively address issues of injustice, inequity, and inequality on campus and in the broader context of American society.
Equiss will take place in Southern Arizona at a camp on Mount Lemmon from May 21-23, 2013. Participants will have the opportunity to learn, explore, and reflect on issues of social justice within a community of college students from across the country. 50 participants will gather together for this experience. Participants will work in small teams and with the full group for a variety of interactive activities and discussions followed by self reflection.
