The Social Action Leadership Retreat provides an opportunity for students to focus on the leadership skills required to be an effective community organizer and social justice activist. During the SALR, students will learn about social justice topic, how to tell their own stories, self care strategies, and how to create tangible pieces that can be shared to promote awareness of an important social issue.
