Isn’t it interesting how mobs of angry conservatives never show up to stop events like this?

ISU ‘Social Justice Summit’ ponders privilege, advocates activism
Iowa State University recently held a “Social Justice Summit” in an effort to “create strategies for implementing social change.”
The summit was guided by staff members from the Student Activities Center, the Department of Residence, the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center, and faculty from the Social Justice Certificate in the School of Education.
In addition to being “able to articulate concepts and terminology related to social justice,” ISU expects participants to come away from the summit with the ability to “recognize their own…privilege, power, and oppression” and articulate how those concepts “operate within the [ISU] community and larger society.”
Following from those objectives, the school also expects that participants will be able to “explain how they will incorporate learning from the Summit into their daily lives.”
In the opening segments of the summit, students were encouraged to realize their privileges and disadvantages with respect to race, gender, and mental health issues, after which there were two events focused on strategies for discussing racism and feminism, according to the Iowa State Daily.
