ROCKLIN, CA - It's no secret college campuses have long been center of creative thought and passionate discussion when it comes to social justice and social change.

"Social Justice Week will tackle some of the critical issues of our time and empower our students to take action," said Megan Seely, Sierra College Professor of Sociology and Women's Studies.
