Join us for the Carleton Student Action Forum! It’s a full day of workshops and events, bringing together Carleton students from across the campus to build skills and share knowledge around community building and social justice. We will explore such topics as campaigns organizing, media training, meeting facilitation, and building inclusive movements. We’ll look at the pertinent issues facing our campuses today, from rising tuition fees to racism and colonization, and we‘ll discuss what meaningful student action can look like.
The Forum is completely free for all students, and lunch is provided!
