Being an activist means you have to know how to organize, connect, mobilize—and hang tough. Gallatin alumni with careers in social justice will share their stories and discuss organizing techniques and follow through, and answer audience questions about how to transform an inspiring idea into action. To fuel the discussion, select Gallatin undergraduates will share their experiences with social justice activism and get feedback from the panel on how to realize their current projects.

Discussion followed by networking reception.
