Place: UW School of Law, Brotman Galleria
If you had the chance to save someone’s life, would you? …what about 8 lives?
Each year, thousands of Americans die waiting for an organ. Desperately needed organs are buried with their owners rather than gifted to neighbors in need. Most Americans—over 95%—support organ donation. And yet, only 45% of eligible donors are registered.
Register or update your organ donor status today! We are registering students, faculty, and staff as organ and tissue donors. Sign up or verify your registration and show our community that you have heart by adding your heart to the wall! Each class, the LLMs, plus faculty and staff have different color hearts to show their support.
We will be tabling over lunch until the end of February. Come by and show us your heart and we’ll give you a heart for the wall. Together, we can save lives.
Feb. 28: Intersectionality & Difference: Working Together for Social Change
Date: Tuesday, Feb. 28: 2017
Place: UW School of Law, Room 115
How can lawyers better meet the legal needs of grassroots communities organizing for change? How can lawyers support community-driven efforts from behind? How do we find balance in our own multiple and intersectional identities that affect our approach to problem solving and social change work? Should we redefine our ideas of lawyers as leaders? RSVP via Symplicity.
