JUSTICE (Jesuit University Students Together In Concerned Empowerment) is a Marquette University Student Organization dedicated to education and action surrounding social justice issues. We have led campaigns focusing on fair trade, gender equality, Sudan divestment, worker's rights, and other issues. Each year we hold a Social Justice Teach-In to promote awareness on campus, and send a group to Fort Benning, GA, for the annual School of the Americas Protest and Vigil.

Darfur Action Coalition

If you would like to do something to stop genocide, you can attend the Darfur Action Coaltion meeting from 5-6:30pm on Wednesday December 6 in William Wehr 153.

At this meeting you will hear an update on recent events in Darfur and reports on Darfur activities in Wisconsin and throughout the U.S.

The purpose of the meeting is to plan activities and events for next semester. We need your energy, ideas and judgement.

If you can, bring your laptop so you can help the Darfur Action Coalition of Wisconsin copy email addresses from petitions into computer files to create email lists for future publicity.

Snacks will be provided.

Last spring the Darfur Action Coalition collected 4,500 signatures and moved our Representative in Congress, Gwen Moore, to undertake civil disobedience to stop genocide in Darfur. With your help, we can do even better next spring.

I hope to see you there!

American Cancer Society Relay for Life

JUSTICE will be attempting to put a team together for the annual Relay for Life in April. I realize it's way far in advance, but the organizers are looking for groups to commit to having a team as early as possible. If you are interested in participating, contact Matt Netkow ( OK, that's all.
