Advocate for an equitable environment free from violence and harassment based on gender, race, and sexual orientation.
Create an anti-racist, non-sexist, queer-affirmative space where all people can feel valued and safe.
Facilitate and strengthen connections among people across lines of difference through programming and educational campaigns.
Integrate an appreciation of Women's Gender and Multicultural Studies across the disciplines.

Jenga & Social Justice

In lieu of an actual blog post today, we'd like to share a video of the most intense Jenga game ever from the Social Justice Coalition's recent All Together Different Student Leadership Retreat, which took place two weeks ago at the YWCA Camp Bernie. Students at the retreat got to learn about Social Justice through interactive activities as well as large and small group discussions.

The Social Justice Coalition is a new organization on the Ramapo campus made up of student leaders, faculty and staff dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of valuing and celebrating diversity as well as working together to promote a safe, inclusive college community.

If you're interested in joining the group you can stop by the next meeting! Meetings are posted on the Coalition's facebook page which is open to anyone.
