  • Social Justice Podcast Club

    Throughout the pandemic, many of us have turned to podcasts as a form of entertainment and education. They are a great way to become exposed to new social justice topics, hear new perspectives and narratives, or dive deeper into specific issues.

The assigned podcast(s) will be sent through email to club members a week or more before each meeting, hopefully providing ample time to listen, dissect, and take notes.
