Iowa State U. Holds ‘Social Justice Summit’
“this day-long workshop will give you the chance to learn more about yourself, engage in discussion with other students on various issues, and create strategies for implementing social change”
The event description admits that this is all about creating new activists. Is that why people are in college?

Iowa State holds ‘Social Justice Summit’
Iowa State University recently held a “Social Justice Summit” for its students. The summit was the 12th of its kind at Iowa State University and consisted of breakout sessions and a keynote speaker.
The breakout session topics included “Burnout in Social Justice Work” and “On Solid Ground: Building Foundations for Courageous Conversations.” The latter entailed “interactive and engaging dialogue focusing on the (sometimes confusing) language of social justice.”
The summit was billed as “an event for ISU students to learn about critical questioning and relevant actions while also providing avenues for addressing global injustice.”
“Aimed at developing advocates and activists, this day-long workshop will give you the chance to learn more about yourself, engage in discussion with other students on various issues, and create strategies for implementing social change!,” the event description reads.
“In the pursuit of social justice we must use education as a tool to empower the people so that we can eliminate the oppression of all. Acting as one we must create an open, equitable, and just society.”
The summit hosted keynote speaker Rabia Chaudry, an attorney working on her second book.
Iowa State is not the only university pushing social justice-related events and initiatives on its student body.
Earlier this month, Campus Reform reported that California State University, Fullerton had been hanging up posters containing “Guiding Principles for Social Justice.”

The trick to designing a Social Justice Summit is to ensure that it is adjacent to a Social Justice Cliff.
Beat me to the joke and I couldn’t have said it any better. The big problem is that they want to push or drag all the rest of us off the cliff with their miserable asses.
