Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

The Suffering Will Not Be Televised: Law and Disorder Week


Time: Friday, September 27, 2013 12:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Location: Multicultural Center

Admission: Free

A series of events, programs and dialogues will take place 9/23-9/27. They will explore topics that have recently come to the forefront regarding the law and how people of difference are (mis)treated. Cases such as Oscar Grant and the Zimmerman Verdict are well known, but there have been countless others. We invite the OSU community to join us as we explore these topics, create a safe place for exploration and move toward a more inclusive and informed Ohio State.

Friday's event: "Letters To Our Family"
Multicultural Center - 12pm-7pm
This event will give students, staff, and faculty the opportunity to write letters of love, support, and encouragement to the family of Trayvon Martin. People can come in anytime between noon and 7 PM to write letters and sign petitions. We are asking that letters be handwritten, but we will provide laptops for necessary accommodations. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about the Stand Your Ground Law Provision made for Ohio, and sign a petition against it.

Hosted by the African American Heritage Festival and The National Association for the Advancement for Colored People, Ohio State Chapter
