2/11/2014 10:53:48The Prison Industrial ComplexCollege universities have a genuine ability to mobilize and create effective and systemic social change. With prison reform surfacing as this centuries largest civil rights movement, it should be the next generation of powerbrokers moving and shaking this movement. (Also racial justice elements tied into this) To abolish the box on college admissions applications pertaining to if student's have ever previously been incarcerated, convicted, or arrested. YesSt. Johns University 2015Information on the prison industrial complex, how the prison system as it currently stands creates unsafe communities as opposed to safer ones, and how university students can engage in breaking the cycle. Every university is placed in an area in which people have been formerly incarcerated. By college campuses working to ban the box on their college admission we can create safer communities by reintegrating previously incarcerated students into the community through education. Giving this often marginalized population the chance at an education would open doors to many positive opportunities creating safer communities. Education from the Inside Out, College and Community Fellowship, the Fortune Society’s David Rothenberg Center for Public Policy and the Center for Community Alternatives. Yes45 minutes would be perfect. NoI was thinking of reaching out to criminal justice reform organizations in the local NOLA area in order to provide some background, support and expertise on the subject. Feedback on that would be great. Yes, small groups will be used and a discussion will begin the workshop in order to get people's minds buzzing about prison reforms.

2/14/2014 11:13:46Something New and Exciting, not listed hereThe workshop is less of a lecture and more of a skill building workshopThis is less about a campaign and more about building skills for campaignsYesUniversity of Texas2015I would love to present a workshop on Non-voilent Civil Disobedence, in which we will cover the history, important information, and do some practicing.

2/19/2014 12:02:56Something New and Exciting, not listed hereI will be presenting a tool that organizers can use to plan strategic and effective campaigns. This is not a specific campaign, rather, a tool that can be used in planning campaigns of any kind. YesITT Technical Institute2014OTBT - Outcome, Target, Belief, Tactic. This is a tool that can be used to construct strategic and effective campaigns for social justice.

Outcome - What do you want?
Target - Who can give it to you? Who is acting as a barrier? Who can remove a barrier?
Belief - What does your target need to believe in order to produce your outcome?
Tactic - What can you do to make your target believe that?

This is a tool created by GetEQUAL Texas members and is an adaptation of some of the principles presented in "Beautiful Trouble"
OTBT links across campuses and campaigns because it provides attendees with a tool that they can use to ensure that their campaigns are strategic and effective. GetEQUAL Texas uses OTBT and has presented it to Breaking The Silence as well. Yes45 minutes would be perfectA dry erase board and dry erase markers. I have my own and can bring them if need be. Just let me know. Each section of the OTBT will be a breakout session essentially. Songs will also be incorporated into the training. Whenever works great.Tiffani Bishoptiffani@getequaltx.org2149295252

2/24/2014 15:06:07Human TraffickingEveryone is affected by human trafficking. It is in the non-fair trade chocolate and coffee that is sold at the Student Union. It is in the clothing that sports our logos in the bookstore etc.Our campaign is more about raising awareness of the issue and funds for the people on the front lines fighting against human trafficking internationally. We would like to encourage students and faculty to be more mindful of the issue of human trafficking. As the University of Mississippi Chapter of the International Justice Mission grows, I can definitely see a campaign to encourage fair trade products be sold in our student unions, bookstores and cafes.NoUniversity of MississippiDecember 2013Title: How the IJM model works to fight against modern day slavery.

I would like the answer the following questions:
What is human trafficking?
What does it look like on a personal level for victims?
What is the International Justice Mission's(IJM) model to fight against human trafficking?
Why is the IJM model effective?
What can I do to help?
We can network to raise awareness and and funds to fight against human trafficking.The international Justice Mission (International), The A21 campaign(International), the polaris project(Washington), night light (Atlanta/international), out of darkness (Atlanta), Wipe every tear (philippines) etcYes1 hourA screen, projector and speakers if possible.

1/15/2016 16:58:19Something New and Exciting, not listed hereThis is a case study of a current student movement. Calls for decolonization, renaming of buildings, and removing of statues across the United states, and especially on college campuses, has reverberated from this South African student group.Increase student political activity, and provide a case study of an effective student movement.YesTulane University2017Current Student politics in South Africa. Though it is motivated by a much more painful and recent racial past, the millennial student political organization in the United States can learn from the activities of the #Rhodesmustfall movement. Beginning with a intersectional group devoted to removing a statue of Cecil Rhodes, #Rhodesmustfall grew and developed into a highly influential voice piece for the dissatisfied youth of South Africa since April of 2015. This November, when a university fee increased was announced by parliament #Rhodesmustfall took on a new cause, #Feesmustfall, which succeeded in shutting down 11 Universities across the country. Protests at government buildings also led to police violence against students, and the movement widened further to include outsourced university workers who joined the students to share their grievances. #Rhodesmustfall #Feesmustfall is a leaderless collaborative;connected by technology, and a complex collective philosophy, created by the students. They criticize the "rainbow nation" for failing to enact the changes oppressed populations were promised after apartheid. This is a model for the 21st century peaceful protest, and I would love the chance to share the analysis I have made.That students can enact political change, and there are many ways in which to influence. We can take many things from the #Rhodesmustfall movement. #RhodesMustFall UCT

Yes1 hourPowerpoint/prezi abilitiesBecause I was able to experience the protest in real time, and track it's action on social media, I can compile tweets, Facebook statuses from prominent group members, along with my own videos, photos and accounts. I can directly contact group members also so that they may add input on the africanist perspective of the American fight for equality. I believe I could present a engaging, inspirational, and informative. Whenever works great.bri8033898591bsulliv6@tulane.eduTulane universityindividual2017
