Social Justice Week: Fall 2020
Pace is furthering its commitment to social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion by hosting a Social Justice Week from Sunday, October 25, through Friday, October 30, in memory of DJ Henry. Submit your proposals and get involved!
What is Social Justice Week?
From Sunday, October 25, through Friday, October 30, a series of social justice-centered programs will be offered on both the NYC and PLV campuses. These week-long events are organized in memory of former Pace student Danroy “DJ” Henry Jr.’s birthday, and will coincide with the 10-year memorial of his murder. Watch the 48 Hours episode about DJ Henry to learn more about him and his story.
What is Social Justice Week trying to accomplish?
A week of social justice-oriented programming created by students, faculty, staff, and alumni that has just one goal: to foster advocacy within us all. This starts with education, empowerment, and passion.
We are raising awareness for a variety of issues, but centering our whole week around the tragic loss of DJ Henry in 2010.
How can I get involved in Social Justice Week?
Any student, staff or faculty member, or alumni can create an event to be held during this week. As long as the program centers around something social justice related, it will be considered for the programming calendar. All proposals must be submitted by Friday, September 25.
Another great way to get involved is to join the NYC or PLV campus committees. You can take part in reviewing event submissions, marketing efforts, or even planning the memorial. Please email Erin Mysogland if you’re interested in participating in one of the committees.
How do I submit a program idea?
Submit your program proposal through SetterSync. Student-led organizations on campus are encouraged to create programming regarding social justice for this week by either hosting a new event or gearing their general member meetings toward this topic.
If you have further questions, please email Sue Maxam. We look forward to partnering with you in this important Pace initiative!
