Students, if you want to participate in the Red Sand Project this year, please come to the meetings. Red Sand Project is a participatory artwork by artist Molly Gochman.
The project “uses sidewalk interventions, earthwork installations, and convenings to create opportunities for people to question, to connect and to take action against vulnerabilities that can lead to human trafficking and exploitation.” (let us know if you have conflicts and not able to attend the meetings, we want you to be a part of this project!) Dean Stacey Robertson will be at the Nov. 9th SAC meeting to talk about human trafficking with the club.
