"Diversity on the Ballot" Panel Discussion & Political Involvement Fair

Terps! Check out the "Diversity on the Ballot" Panel Discussion, and Political Involvement Fair. This program will focus on the intersection of two important 2012 ballot initiatives in Maryland: The Marriage Equality Act and the Maryland Dream Act. Immigrant access to education and marriage equality may seem like very different issues. Our "Diversity on the Ballot" panel will discuss the intersection of issues, solidarity and broad social justice frameworks, LGBT and undocumented issues, and what diversity looks like on the ballot and at the polls. They will challenge us to consider, is it about "justice" or "just us?" Following the panel discussion will be a Political Involvement Fair, providing an opportunity for students interested in engaging with issue advocacy organizations to get more information and to become more civically engaged, whether it is on diversity issues or beyond.
