Our Bi-Annual St. John's Dialogue Day is quickly approaching. This year, we are discussing the humanitarian crisis at Riker's Island and will be hearing from an incredible panel of decarceration activists and public defenders: Darren Mack, Olayemi Olurin, King Downing, and Marty LaFalce.


Summer of Pride

Members of CSJ's E-Board met up at the NYC Pride Parade to celebrate the progress made for the LGBTQ+ community. However, the fight for full LGBTQ+ acceptance is far from over. We see you, we hear you, and we appreciate you.

In an effort to (1) hold ourselves accountable to our purported investment in an anti-racist agenda; (2) be transparent in how we evaluate our own actions as well as the actions of our peers, faculty members and the administration; and (3) deliver on our pledge to document and codify, in unequivocal terms, the standard of commitment to the progressive pursuit and promotion of equity and justice to which all student organizations will assent, the Coalition for Social Justice published a Full Report in December 2020.
