3-4 p.m. Our Rights Matter Workshop

This summer, RISE for Youth, Peter Paul, and Legal Aid Justice Center collaborated to virtually launch Our Rights Matter. The initiative’s mission is to educate, engage and empower youth and young adults on what to do when they interact with law enforcement.
 
Please join co-facilitators Kim Dean-Anderson (W’97, Bonner Center for Civic Engagement) and Cassie Powell (L, 16, Legal Aid Justice Center) for an informative and interactive session where they will share recommendations offered through this initiative. Following the session, each participant will receive facilitator’s materials so they can continue to disseminate the information to their networks and the opportunity to pick up a wallet-size notecard and wristband with a reminder of the initiative’s primary guidance.

3-5 p.m. Eco-Corridor Project
Help beautify UR’s greenest location, the Gambles Mill Eco-Corridor. The Office for Sustainability is looking for volunteers to remove invasive species along the trail, clean up overgrown beds in Abby’s Garden, and refresh our woodship trail. Gloves and equipment will be provided.
 
Participants meet at 3 p.m. at the campus entrance to the Eco-Corridor (across from the Steam Plant on UR Drive). Please wear close-toed shoes and wear clothing you won’t mind getting dirty. 

4-6 p.m. Voter Registration Virtual Drop-In Advising
