MLK Jr Day 2017

Come join others in the community Monday January 16th to honor MLK Jr Day by helping to sort coats for a coat drive and/or by watching the film “13th” which will be followed by a panel discussion.

The coat drive sorting will be held from 11am-2pm in Hoke 339 on the EOU campus and the movie screening followed by a panel discussion will be at @HQ 112 Depot Street in downtown La Grande from 3-6pm. The film addresses the history and continuation of modern day slavery through the prison system and the accompanying criminalization of people of color. Come join us for one or both events.

Oregon Rural Action is partnering for this event with the EOU Multicultural Center, EOU Trio, Racial Justice in Eastern Oregon (RJEO) & the Student Council for Multicultural Affairs (SCMA).
