Founded in fall 2014, the Social Justice Organizers (SJOs) are student leaders dedicated to creating and promoting a campus culture that respects and celebrates diversity. In 2021, Achieving Community Transformations (ACT) was merged with the SJOs in order to turn the critical dialogue work the organization does into real community action and change; thus creating SJOxACT. Our team creates space for dialogue, plans programs relating to social justice, and hosts civic engagement opportunities for the UW Bothell community. SJOxACT works to build the campus community's capacity to recognize, confront, and deconstruct systems of oppression and, using a Dialogue-to-Action model, promotes community change.
Ongoing SJOxACT programs include the D.I.Y and Dialogue discussion series, the Processing with the Pack podcast, film screenings, advocacy workshops, identity awareness programs, Alternative Spring Break, Indigineous Peoples' Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Week, Get Out The Vote, and much more. We are also happy to collaborate to develop new programs across campus!
