Last weekend, Creighton students engaged in reflection and meaningful dialogue about topics of social identity, privilege, solidarity, and intersectionality on the first ever Intersections Retreat hosted by Campus Ministry, the Creighton Intercultural Center, and the Student Leadership & Involvement Center! Peep some current and former Cortinians!
This past weekend was our Spring 2020 Cortina Retreat! Marcey Yates, the Arts & Culture Contributer at the Culxr House in North Omaha spoke with us about our call to shift the narrative of Omaha to a more diverse and inclusive community by supporting local businesses and creating a safe space for artists of all kind. 🌱🌿🌳 Wendy Goldberg, the Interim Executive Director at the Tri-Faith Initiative in Omaha shared with us the call to connect with the religious other so that all communities can live out this model for a peaceful co-existence based upon the religious freedom for all and the respectful understanding of all faiths. 🌎🌍🌏 Our very own Cortinian Chloe Cassens on behalf of the Creighton VIP Center shared with us a presentation on the social injustice of gender based violence and it’s implications on our local, national, and global communities. We are excited for our members to continue to cultivate an awareness about many issues in the spirit of Service, Community, Faith, and Justice!
