Who is it for?

The Audre Lorde Social Justice Living Learning Program is for first-year students who are interested in social justice advocacy for identities like race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity. The rooms in the Audre Lorde Social Justice LLP are gender inclusive.

Why should I join?

The Audre Lorde Social Justice LLP offers students a unique opportunity to develop their understanding and advocacy for intersecting identities, such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity through a social justice lens.

Students who participate in the community will have the ability to participate in tailored co-curricular programs and a host of dynamic course offerings that help students to reflect on their own identities and others' experiences. Using Audre Lorde's life as a template for social action, students in the Audre Lorde Social Justice LLP will interrogate their own intersecting identities as well as study the broader history and cultural context of social categories, develop a plan for identity-based social justice and host programming that will educate themselves and their peers.

All Audre Lorde Social Justice LLP students take a connected course during the fall semester.
