“to teach them about social justice issues”
Learning to become an activist is not the point of going to college and never has been. You wouldn’t know that by looking around at what’s happening on campuses today.
The Daily Caller reports:
College Giving Students Up To $1500 To Fund Protests
Kalamazoo College’s Arcus Center is giving funds to students and staff to teach them about social justice issues and provide them money for protests.
The grants are meant to “provide opportunities to learn about a variety of social justice and human rights issues, develop new skills in organizing and leadership, and take action on the issues that prospective applicants care most about,” according to its website.
Grants range from $50 to $1,500 and go towards social justice trainings, conferences, protests, and rallies. Earlier this year, students received financial support to attend an immigration rally in Washington, D.C., to advocate for “comprehensive immigration policies.”
