Lunch Club | Politics

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

While scrolling through our newsfeeds, we encounter stories that bring to light the internal conflicts in our country. Racism, sexism, classism, etc. have always existed, but are now being discussed on the national platform. People care about things that are relevant to their lives, but every person’s contribution defines the values of their communities.

Defining social justice is complex; it ignites controversy, is not neutral, and varies by person, culture, social class, gender, context, space and time. In fact, when definitions are bound by consensus, it is not likely to satisfy even the most open-minded of thinkers. Recognizing that our university is a microcosm that represents the social climate of our country, the Asian & Pacific Cultural Center support opportunities for the OSU community to engage in dialogue around issues that impact us.

With this in mind, the APCC will be hosting ‘Lunch Club,’ where we will be enjoying meals together while discussing various social justice topics and how internalization of -ism’s affect our way of life. We are aware that these issues are experienced by many, but are not being openly discussed. We further recognize that a commitment to enacting social justice in school does not have to be activist-driven. Nevertheless, it can be one heck of an experience to sit and talk with a group of friends about the things that matter.

Join the APCC on Wednesdays from 12pm-1pm of Weeks 5 (02/08), 6 (02/15), and 7 (02/22) to exercise your brain and your tummy :3
