Social Justice

The Social Justice Committee (SJ) is focused on social justice, advocacy, and community service projects both on and off Penn’s campus. We partner with resource centers like Civic House and the Netter Center for Community Partnerships. We also work with student groups and administrative boards such as Civic House Associates Coalition (CHAC) the Division of Public Safety (DPS), and the University Committee on Open Expression. In past years, SJ projects have included College Day, where students in West Philadelphia come to Penn’s campus to become exposed to Penn and what it has to offer, the translation of admissions material into foreign languages, and the removal of tennis court fees at Penn Park. This year we hope to address sexual assault and awareness training on Penn’s campus, bike safety, and the creation of safety fund as well as a multitude of other projects. The SJ Director Natasha Menon welcomes your input at justice@pennua.org.
