Crafting Public Policy at Arise for Social Justice


Join students from Amherst, Mount Holyoke, Hampshire, and Oberlin Colleges and the University of Massachusetts as they present multi-media presentations on public policy crafted during Interterm. The event begins Thursday, February 4 at 4:30 p.m. in the Friedmann Room, on the second floor of Keefe Campus Center at Amherst College.

The students studied four current regional issues: homelessness, biomass, charter schools and food security, working with five regional organizations in developing policy: Arise for Social Justice, the Springfield Promise Neighborhood Committee, the Interfaith Housing Corp, Holyoke Food, and the Fitness Policy Council.
