“If you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice. Say that I was a drum major for peace. I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things will not matter.” -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In the spirit of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., join us as drum majors for social justice!

Why Are We Drum Majors For Social Justice?

The 2nd annual Social Justice Symposium (SJS) is centered around the principles of using social democracy to assist UGA students and the local community in working together to shape the destiny of Athens community residents. This is to empower our community’s voice in shaping their own destiny.

What Is Our Drum Major Goal?

  1. Sustain a successful, solution-focused student/community driven movement that empowers our city through a collaborative conference that is grounded in community driven themes.
  2. Expand these efforts to post-conference community engagement activities.

We are planning to have 250 community residents and students in attendance at the SJS on January 20, 2017. We are striving to raise $2,000 to assist us in reaching these goals. The funds will go towards event necessities to make this Symposium a forum for lasting social change in our city.
