The organized voice for every student at the University of Georgia.
Statistics are just numbers, behind these numbers are people. Stories come from these real people–our friends, our family, our neighbors.
Join us on Thursday, Oct. 23 from 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. in MLC 150 for a night of story-sharing, engagement, dialogue, and dinners with the purpose of minority empowerment and diversity engagement.
It seems like whenever a minority identifying individual “succeeds”, he or she is identified as a “success story.” We will be featuring successful members of different minorities speaking of their own story and success, with a focus on how this idea of “success story” shouldn’t exist. The idea that minority success is “outstanding” means it’s not the norm–we don’t want “success stories.” We just want stories.
This event will feature different success stories from UGA, Athens, and Georgia, because we believe that hearing stories from our neighbors and friends is truly the most impactful way to humanize these issues.
As a part of Raise Your Hand UGA’s Social Justice Week, join us for the final event of “Raise Your Hand for Equality” Day at UGA!
