Elon University Awareness Programs
This blog is meant to serve as a resource for those interested in advocating for social justice. It is for people of all beliefs and all perspectives, and it is enhanced through people’s willingness to engage in discussions and think through the difficult world of social change. Currently, there are three awareness programs through Elon Volunteers! in the Kernodle Center.
- Amnesty International, USA: Join a worldwide movement to campaign for internationally recognized universal human rights.
- Invisible Children: Raise awareness and funds to educate former child soldiers of Northern Uganda.
- Oxfam International: Find solutions to global poverty, hunger, and social injustice.
