 Eastern Michigan University on Friday will host a social justice forum and workshops.

A Day in Social Justice is a one day forum addressing issues like class, race, sexism, and education.


Field Program Director for EMU's School of Social Justice, Ashley DiGuiseppe says the current world events make a forum on these topics very timely. 

 “I think that this kind of thing is important for us to focus on. What our place in society is, [what] Eastern’s place in society [is[, and how we can create a more socially  just environment for everybody.” 

Yvonne Willis-Dulin is the keynote speaker. She's known as a longtime civil rights advocate in Southeast Michigan  and the founder of the first domestic violence shelter in Detroit. Those who want to attend can register anytime up until the start of the event. A Day in Social Justice begins at noon at the McKenny Hall Ballroom on EMU’s campus.
