 +**Thursday, Feb. 8, 1:10-2 PM, AWM Workshop **
 +
 +AWM will host a worksop titled "Who is Responsible for Social Justice?"​ in MSB 1147.

 +The term "​social justice"​ gets thrown around in the media (and in social media) haphazardly. Who administrates social justice? Are you interested in the history of this term, why it gets used, and figuring out where you stand regarding this heated phrase?  ​
 +
 +This Thursday, at 1pm, your very own UC Davis chapter of AWM will host a workshop entitled "Who is Responsible for Social Justice?" ​ During the hour, participants will:
 +  * define social justice and how it relates to systemic injustices of the past and present,
 +  * explore how privilege affects responsibility allocation, and
 +  * become more self aware, and intentional,​ about their role in the fight for social justice.
 +
 +Light snacks will be provided. ​ We hope to see you there.
