Iliff on the Road: Metro State - CO LEADS (J&P) Summit, Denver
Description: Iliff is co-sponsoring the CO-LEADS (Colorado Leadership for Equity, Advocacy and Discovering Social Justice) Summit on the Auraria Campus, Denver.
The CO-LEADS conference was established in 2009 by a group of individuals on the Auraria and DU campuses as a way to bridge discussions of leadership and social justice in a meaningful way. The Summit invites college students from across Colorado to join in discussions of social justice, activism, advocacy, and social change. Throughout the day students participate in a number of workshops that challenge, grow, and inspire them to make change in their own lives and their communities. The Summit is co-sponsored by The Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, The University of Colorado Denver, The Illiff School of Theology, and The University of Denver.
The 2012 Theme – Your Voice: Listen to, Find and Use
Your voice is a powerful tool for social change and can be expressed in multiple ways. It is sometimes difficult to put your voice to action. This conference strives to challenge participants to reflect on their commitment to social justice to inform their own voices so they can learn how to use them effectively.
Date: Oct. 19, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Location: The Phoenix Center at Auraria, Tivoli Student Center, Denver
