Rally for Your Rights film screening


In collaboration with the Global Diversity and Inclusion Center, Student Conduct presents a new campus initiative called Rally for your Rights. This is a campus-wide initiative to promote community learning, collaboration, effective dialogue, and the celebration of free speech and expression. 

The second event of the semester will be Thursday, February 22 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the Library Multimedia Studio (CO 111). This event will help participants develop a better understanding of rights and disenfranchisement at a systemic level. We will view the documentary the “13th” and hold a discussion afterward.

If you are interested in getting involved or if you would like to share opinions or ideas, please feel free to reach out to Jasmine Marks or Rick Miller.

Tax-specific Safety Tips
