Social Justice Fair Raises Much Needed Awareness
Nearly 125 people attended Tuesday’s Social Justice and Diversity Fair, which featured the work of 65 St. John Fisher College and Wilson Early College International High School students aimed at raising awareness of social issues.
The projects represented a wide variety of topics including; technology benefits in early childhood education, long-term effects of bullying, social aspects of children with autism, and Safe Zone schools, among others. Most of the poster presentations included collaborative projects with schools and human service agencies throughout the Rochester area. The posters completed by the high school students, under the guidance of Fisher education students, focused on their “Mix It Up Day,” which took place at their school on October 18 and focused on human trafficking and Sudanese issues.
Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. School of Education faculty members Drs. Jim Wood, Michelle Erklenz-Watts, and Jeff Liles oversaw the projects and the fair. All of the work was completed in Diversity and Social Justice classes.
