You are invited to our third annual CASC OUT. This is a day where CASC Students can share stories of how they CASC on campus and in our larger communites and where Prospective CASC Students can learn more about the minor and the type of work they will do as part of the program. CASC OUT will be in celebration with World Day of Social Justice on Wednesday, February 20, 2019.
What is World Day of Social Justice? The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 20 February as World Day of Social Justice in 2007. Observance of World Day of Social Justice should support efforts of the international community in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being and justice for all.

The SSW Book Club will meet on Wed Feb 20 at noon in room 1804 SSWB.
We will discuss Kevin Boyle's book Arc of Justice; A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age. This book tells the "electrifying story of the sensational murder trial that divided a city and ignited the civil rights struggle." It won the 2004 National Book Award for nonfiction.
On Nov 7, 2018, Jamon Jordan of the Black Scroll Network spoke at SSW. He provided an excellent overview of history and of structural racism, and then told the story of Ossian and Gladys Sweet. His presentation inspired our choice of this book.
You are welcome to join us whether or not you have attended before, and whether or not you have finished the book.
All members of the SSW community are invited. Feel free to bring your lunch.
