The Women’s March SLO is proud to participate in this event! Dawn Addis and Andrea Chmelik will be presenting on How To Start a Movement.

The Center for Service in Action is excited to announce the 16th Annual Change the Status Quo: A Social Justice Conference, on Friday, February 16, and Saturday, February 17, 2018. This conference aims to empower students to use the Learn by Doing spirit to challenge social norms, ask critical questions, demand solutions and make lasting social change. Through guest speakers, inspiring workshops, and engaging sessions, students will leave the conference with a new-found sense and understanding of social justice, and how they can take ownership of their role in moving the needle with regard to social change.

The Friday night session on February 16 includes an introduction to social justice topics with a documentary screening of Near Normal Man and Q&A with filmmaker Charlene Stern. The main event on Saturday February 17 will feature a keynote by Holocaust survivor and social activist, Ben Stern, zero-waste breakfast and lunch, resource fair and a full day of workshops organized by student and community experts on a wide variety of social justice issues.
