Simpson College community marches to "End the Isms" and spread awareness of the injustices of the world

For the fourth year in a row, Simpson College has peacefully protested the end to prejudice and hate.

Despite wind, rain and coldness, students gathered at the Kent Campus Center to celebrate the diversity on our campus, in our country and in the world.

Unfortunately, less than 100 people participated the march. Some joined as they heard the speakers later in the day. One man even joined in the march while the group was walking the town square.

Eight speakers concluded the march in front of Kent. The Black Student Union, S.A.R.A., PRIDE, Simpson Feminists, and the Latino Unidos all spoke for the equality of all humankind. Information for each organization are posted below.

Carina Gonzalez, March to End the Isms President, concluded the day with her personal story and fight to spread love over hate.
