About

As Fenwick’s Equality Club, we will strive for empowering marginalized groups of people such as women, the LGBTQ community, African Americans, and other minorities. We aim to educate the Fenwick community and student body on opportunities to support oppressed groups and to work to alleviate social justice issues.  A main goal of this organization is to promote open discussion and awareness about conflicts in modern culture and politics and topics surrounding intersectionality. Raised consciousness of these subjects will lead to positive contribution to the community through service.

Objectives We Plan to Foster

  • Organizing and participating in service projects centered on disenfranchised groups.
  • Host speaking engagements for informed, activist speakers
  • Maintain respectful forums of discussion surrounding political speeches and current events
  • Hold formal debates on controversial current and proposed legislation​
