EC Gun Control Group Interest Meeting (4/26- 4 p.m. at Rose City)

This semester I've worked tirelessly to bring awareness about gun violence and modes of advocating for gun control to Earlham's campus. However, as a soon-to-be graduate, I realize that I only have a few days left as a student activist for this cause. If you're interested in keeping this conversation going and would like to help organize, protest and maybe even start a Students Demand Action chapter at Earlham, please come to Rose City at 4 p.m. this Thursday, April 26th. Questions, comments, and concerns can be sent to <esturco14@earlham.edu>.


Poetry Night with Candlelights

You are invited to Candlelight/Poetry Night organized by SFT on April 25th on The Heart from 8 - 9 p.m. This event is to celebrate the 29th birthday of Panchen Lama who is the second highest spiritual leader of Tibet. Unfortunately, he was kidnapped by Chinese Government at the age of 6 years old in 1995. We would like to invoice his rights to return to his homeland through sharing poetries and lightning candles. Please join us and bring your poem if you have one to share. Contact: Lobsang Palmo (lpalmo16).
