One hundred and fifty Grade 8 students from schools throughout Windsor and Essex County will increase their knowledge and awareness of social justice at a day-long forum on Thursday, February 21st at the University of Windsor's Odette Building.

This is the 15th year for this community-sponsored event with workshops provided on topics of Homelessness and Poverty, the Environment, Lessons Learned from the Holocaust, Removing the Stigma of Mental Illness and Experiential Learning Through the Arts. It begins at 8:30 a.m. running through 4:00 p.m.

Participating students are expected to bring back information learned at the forum to their home schools and initiate projects that foster social justice in their school communities.
