Among the many excellent workshops offered as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service at WSU Vancouver, two will be hosted by WSU Vancouver Librarians. We're making it a day "on" and encourage you to join us. This year's theme is "Organizing for Social Change"--click the link above for a full description and schedule.

Here are the details on the two librarian-led workshops:

Social Justice Syllabus: Information to Self-empower Activists (Rotation #1, 10:30-11:20)
Presented by Nicholas Schiller, MLS, Systems and Instruction Librarian

In the past few years we've seen the rise of social justice syllabi being spread through social media. Activists and scholars have collected and distributed information using hashtags such as #FergusonSyllabus and #OrlandoSyllabus. In this workshop, participants will learn about the concept of social justice syllabi and practice accessing and contributing to social justice syllabi.

Adapting and Applying Protest Methods on College Campuses from the 1960s to Present (Rotation #2, 11:30-12:20)
Presented by Jenifer Becker, WSU Vancouver Reference Librarian

Explore how student protest methods—walk-outs, sit-ins, social media campaigns, athletic dissent and more—of the last 50 years can be adapted and applied to suit the goals you have for bettering your school.
