Drawing on the richness of Queens’ dynamic faculty and community leaders who have a depth of knowledge and experience in the work of social justice, social change, and organizing, the Stan Greenspon Center will offer our third annual Fall Advocacy Education Program. This year’s program will provide the community with the tools that are needed to move from marches to movements in order to create sustainable social change. Throughout the year, we will maintain our connections as a network while we advocate for change.
