1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Social Justice Series - Jessica Pettitt Presents "Just Rescue"
Who has the power to choose who lives or dies? Who writes the moral code we live by? Who “unwrites” this code? Even with limited information, we are socialized to make quick decisions about another person. This directly relates to how we work with, talk to, and support other people. When given an opportunity to examine “back stories” and assumptions, participants learn the positives and negatives of stereotypes. Participants can use this knowledge to make informed decisions in the future.

Join The President's Commission on Diversity Affairs  and The Office of Diversity Services for the opening event of the 2013-2014 Social Justice Series, The Year of the Ally. Jessica Pettitt will lead a fun and interactive workshop called "Just Rescue." This workshop is open to the campus community and will be held in the C.Walsh Theater. Giveaways to the first 40 participants!

Jessica is the "diversity educator" your family warned you about. Nominated for two years by Campus Activities Magazine for Best Diversity Artist, Jessica's programs are direct, customized, and highly interactive. Her workshops take participants on a journey weaving together politics, theory, current events, and storytelling with large doses of humor. Though participants will be laughing, she promises no drum circles, guilty tears, or finger pointing. This will be a HIGHLY interactive program that will leave participants with actual action steps to make real change in their lives. Jessica takes 10+ years in Student Affairs, 5+ years of national consulting work, and 2+ years of stand up comedy stage to stage as part of her mission to inspire change, dismantle oppression, and recognize privilege.
