Sharing how they have activated Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream in their own lives, and how they plan to help others activate their dreams, the Cal State Fullerton campus community will come together for two days of reflection and service in honor of the late civil rights icon.
Reflections begin Wednesday, Jan. 23, from 12:45 to 1:30 p.m. in the student housing complex piazza with speeches from Natalie Graham, associate professor of African American studies; LaTosha Traylor, assistant professor of sociology and faculty-in-residence; and biological science major Taylor Thornton. Posters of King’s work and life, created by art major Carmen Serrano, will be on display at the event, as well as on the first floor of the Pollak Library beginning Jan. 21.
Following the presentations, students, faculty and staff members are invited to participate in an on-campus service activity from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Room 111 of the Pine residence hall. Drop in for any amount of time to make fleece blankets for Pathways of Hope, a local nonprofit organization serving the hungry and homeless in north Orange County.
On Saturday, Jan. 26, the campus community is invited to participate in a CSUF Day of Service at OC Food Bank, 11870 Monarch St., Garden Grove. From 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., volunteers will pack food boxes for people in need in Orange County and surrounding areas. Online RSVP is requested, as space is limited to 100 participants.
Activities are coordinated by CSUF’s African American Resource Center, Housing and Residential Engagement, and WoMen’s and Adult Reentry Center. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
