The Equity Center, U.Va.

The Equity Center

A UVA Democracy Initiative center for the redress of inequity through community-engaged scholarship

"Giving Thanks" - Community Launch of the Equity Center

November 14, 2019 to November 15, 2019

This event is to thank our community for putting their faith and work into building the Equity Center. We want to begin by thanking them too for all they have done to build and support UVA.  It will be our turn to begin the structured and systemic practice of giving back. The two days will include:

  • FAFSA and College Essay Parties – UVA students will be in the community helping parents complete FAFSA forms to submit to colleges where their kids will apply, and helping youth construct essays for college applications. Thursday, Nov. 14, 2019.

  • Dance Party – Live music for an old fashion dance party
  • Giving Thanks Dinner – sit-down dinner with presentations by our community partners to showcase work that has been done by the Center so far
  • Music and Film – Local activist/filmmaker will preview her film and speak along with local musicians.
