The Club aim's to keep Las Positas and the surrounding community aware of today's important, but often overlooked issues. Our goal is to educate the Las Positas community and others on social justice related issues and how to obtain peace. By educating the community we anticipate to revive activism on campus about these very important issues.
In our Club meetings we begin by first educating our club members on an issue that they feel is important. We then engage in mature academic discussion with diverse perspectives on the issue. Upon discussion our club expects to partner with local organizations that focus on the issues the club members are interested in. This furthermore helps benefit those in need and fosters civic engagement among LPC students.
