Exploring Unheard Voices will give students an opportunity to listen to empowering stories of citizens that are unheard. Students will learn of opportunities of how to affect change in their communities with the right skills. Universities provide an atmosphere of learning and empowerment so that individuals can become active and productive members of society. When students learn to take full advantage of their situations they are becoming our future leaders. “Social Justice: Exploring Unheard Voices” is a conference that will focus on using personal stories as an avenue for improving communities. As individuals we use our stories to develop best practices for exploring life. It is important to bring our state together to share ideas and enhance the work that is being done to make our students informed and engaged citizens in our communities.
