DICE Seeks Event Proposals for Occupy SLU Commemoration Week
The Division of Diversity and Innovative Community Engagement (DICE) invites members of the SLU community to submit events and activities to be added to the calendar for the 9th Annual Occupy SLU Commemoration Week.
Occupy SLU started in October 2014 with six days of peaceful occupation at Saint Louis University's campus clock tower that included daily teach-ins and community conversations following the officer-involved shootings of two African American young men: Michael Brown in Ferguson and VonDerrit Myers Jr., the son of a long-time member of the SLU community, VonDerrit Myers Sr., in the nearby Shaw neighborhood of St. Louis.
The occupation ended with the adoption of the Clock Tower Accords which committed SLU to actively strengthen its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus. Events at SLU related to #OccupySLU now raise awareness about ongoing racial justice and equity issues and assess the advancement and growth within the Clock Tower Accords.
Members of the SLU community may submit events to be added to the Occupy SLU calendar. Activities and events may be scheduled anytime during the month of October.
The deadline to submit an event is September 20, 2023.
