Students attending 2016 summit

Social Justice in Action Leadership Summit

Saturday, February 17, 20189:00AM - Saturday, February 17, 20184:00PM
At Lankford Student Union
Organized by Citizen Leadership & Social Justice Education

The 2018 summit -- Engaging the Noise: Developing a Leadership and Activist Mindset -- will focus on how to use various leadership platforms and spheres of influence to address the many social issues affecting our society.  Discussion will focus on how to become more active citizens who are able to critically engage with the systems, structures, and institutions of oppression while also challenging the noisy rhetoric which has become so pervasive today.

 

The keynote speaker, Joshua Fredenburg, is a media commentator, leadership/diversity consultant, relationship expert, and author. His presentation will provide student leaders with a solid working definition of leadership and help them identify the positive correlation between leadership, student activism, and evolving into agents of positive change. In addition, he will share practical and applicable leadership strategies to enable positive impacts in communities, the nation, and the world.

Fredenburg's presentation will be followed by a collection of workshops/breakout sessions designed to give participants the chance to learn more about themselves, engage in discussion with others on a variety of issues, and create strategies for implementing social change. Participants will learn about the history of race in government and politics, the impact race has on political issues, and understand how they can be a voice of action for positive change as citizen leaders.
