Social Justice Symposium 2012
The 2012-13 Elite Pirates hosted the first ever ECU Social Justice Symposium
on November 17, 2012. Students from around campus joined together to discuss
the importance of understanding what social justice is and how to create a more
just world. Jamie Washington, a renowned authority on the topic of social justice
