Have you ever felt that your weekends are always the same and you want to do something different?  Something new? Something fun?  Change It Up is a student organization that works to provide various activities and fun events to students as an alternative to going out on the weekend.  The goal of the student organization is to connect students who have similar interests, whether they are substance free or not, so that they can spend time together and have fun. Over the summer, the student organization went through complete rebranding.  Formerly known as Fun Without Drinking (FWD), or “Forward,” the student organization wanted to eliminate the negative connotations that went along with that name.  They often ran into a problem where students who did drink felt that they weren’t welcomed.

Mario Cardozo is from ACOOC (Collective Action for Conscientious Objectors), which views nonviolent action as a political strategy against the violent and militarized responses to social justice issues that have historically occurred in Colombia. One of the main methods of the Colombian state is recruitment of young men from excluded sectors of society who are forced to serve an obligatory military service, feeding the largest military in all of Latin America.

Many of the actions of ACOOC and Mario Cardozo are collective works created and shared through theater and music. He is the winner of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award 2014. this award celebrates the greatness of people from around the world who are making a difference in their communities and beyond.
