“I, too, am America” Inauguration Day 2017 teach-ins

On January 20, 2017, the Student Life Multicultural Center (SL MCC) is hosting “I, too, am America” Inauguration Day 2017. Inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem “I, Too” this one-day event will include poetry reading workshops, a community mural art project, and campus teach-ins. The purpose of this event is to foster a safe space for the Ohio State campus community to connect with one another, support aspirations, and empower growth and change.

The MCC is currently reaching out to graduate students, faculty, and staff to host 45 minute teach-in sessions. After attending one of the programs, attendees will be able to:

  • Define social justice and identify at least two social justice issues
  • Identify at least one lesson, idea, tool, or strategy to apply to their academic and personal experiences
  • Meet at least two new people as well as reconnect with at least one old friend/acquaintance
  • Describe one point of inspiration, motivation or empowerment

Deadline is Tuesday, January 10.
