  • Learn about the civil rights movement and King’s legacy in Cleveland from a local community activist.
  • Identify present-day issues and explore ways to take action to create positive change on CWRU’s campus.

The symposium is a call to action that will give students the opportunity to celebrate the holiday through service, reflection and dialogue for positive change. It will include a morning of service followed by afternoon discussions that will empower students to create positive change on the Case Western Reserve University campus and beyond.
