April is not only a month to celebrate the coming of spring, but also to appreciate the diversity in and around our communities. Diversity Month is a well-recognized time on our campus. The Office of Multicultural Affairs provides several great opportunities to learn more about yourself and the world around you. One event that they are hosting this year is keynote speaker, Mia Mingus. On April 16, in the Eppley Auditorium (room 102), starting at 11:30 AM, Mingus will discuss “how WE can make our communities and world a place of empowerment for all of us.” This keynote speaker is a writer, community educator and organizer working for disability justice responses to child sexual abuse. Recently, Mingus was recognized as a Champion of Change by the White House for her efforts to uplift communities (leavingevidence.wordpress.com). Other events that will be hosted this month include Locs & Wellness on April 15th and The House of Privilege on April 17th.
