Relational Justice Topic of Asian-American Alliance Event
Tuesday, 12 March 2013
Trinity’s Asian-American Alliance (AAA) hosts events that celebrate diversity at Trinity and raise awareness of injustice across the globe. AAA recently hosted its first event of the semester, which focused on immigration policy and the need for “relational justice.”
Guest speaker Sarah Quezada, who works at Mission Year, a Christian urban ministry program based in Atlanta, Georgia, described how relational justice encourages people to create relationships with the groups they are trying to help. By doing so, volunteers better understand the needs of the group they are helping.
AAA President Nicole Ferreria ’13 of Orland Park, Illinois, said, “I’m grateful for Mrs. Quezada’s willingness to also share her personal story,” said Ferreria. “I hope that our upcoming events continue to encourage Trinity in its efforts to celebrate diversity and become aware of social justice issues.”
The AAA has planned several upcoming events including the annual Celebration of Asia, on Wednesday, April 3. Guests are welcome to enjoy an evening of food, music, and cultural traditions.
