SJSU Legacy Week 2012 is a week-long celebration of SJSU students taking a stand for justice. This year, John Carlos will give a keynote address at noon on Wednesday, October 17 at the Statue Garden. There will also be an opportunity for a community-wide photo with John Carlos at 1:15 pm.
In addition, students are invited to the Election Debates 2012 on the 15th, which will feature students and community members debating Measure D and Propositions 30, 34, 35, and 36.
Also, students are also invited to participate in the 7th Annual Poverty Under the Stars, an event where students sleep out in solidarity with people who are in poverty. Poverty Under the Stars will take place on Wednesday, October 18th and this year will focus on minimum wage workers. Contact Elisha St. Laurent at email@example.com if students want to sleep out. Students can also just attend the 6-8 pm event that will feature speakers, an improv play, spoken word, and a movie.
Lastly, students can also participate in Legacy Week by making a poster (8 1/2” by 11” up to 4′ by 4′) that addresses one of the Statue themes, such as Racism, Sexism, Oppression, Poverty, Human Rights, Equality or Peace and Nonviolence, in the context of the candidates, measures, and propositions from the 2012 Elections. Students can drop off the poster at the Smith/Carlos Statue Garden on Monday, October 15 between noon and 5 pm.
