midterm elections 2018

Unpacking political participation with the OEI

The day after the closely-watched midterm elections, the Office of Equity of Inclusion (OEI) and Assistant Director Kayla Kosaki hosted a Midterm Election Debriefing event. The event covered the results of the election, and what they meant to individuals, and to vulnerable communities. There was consensus among those in attendance that dialogues, like this one, are incredibly important, yet few had ever had access to discussions similar to this before.

Voter information

Social Work 363: Social Work Practice 3 Working with Groups and Organizations put on a Voter Info Forum on Nov. 1 at 4:30 p.m. on the first floor of the library. Refreshments in the form of tasty baked goods were provided for all who attended. Eight students and Professor of Social Work Laurel Brown led the event, educating other students on different propositions and candidates, as well as providing a flyer on different information ranging from voting by mail to early voting. This event was a follow–up to their community outreach project, which was a voter registration tabling event where they helped people register to vote outside the Campus Inn at lunch time. According to third–year Hailey McCord, who was one of the speakers at the event, the Voter Info Forum was meant to “further encourage people to do their civic duty to vote, or empower them to know that they can vote and their vote matters and what they would be voting for.”
