WSU group hopes to increase student social action

02-Mar-17 40By Trevor Reichle

WICHITA - Given the current political climate, it is easy to imagine how many progressive organizations of all different types are mobilizing and gearing up for the fights they will have to endure in the future. This is especially true of young people, who have become more engaged in local and state politics than they have in quite some time.
    As such, the Wichita State University Community Psychology Association (CPA) is hosting an event directed toward students who want to become more involved in local organizations that are aimed at enacting social change in the community.

    The Social Action Summit will be held Mar. 10 beginning at noon, on WSU’s main campus in the Rhatigan Student Center.
    According to the group’s Facebook page, the CPA is “an official recognized student organization at WSU that connects graduate and undergraduate students interested in community research and action.” The group aims to get students more involved in their communities in fields of interest to them.
    The organizers of the summit are expecting a variety of groups, both non-campus and campus related, to be present with information on how students can get involved. There will also be supplies provided for attendees to create their own social action posters and a potential voter registration booth as well. Political candidates are also welcome to sign up volunteers. l
