Students and alumni work for social change

Oregon students hoping that their efforts will make a difference in the world got together at Reed in February at the annual regional conference of Students Actively Changing Society. Reed seniors Teresa Keirns ’04 and Ashly Hinmon ’04 coordinated the conference, working with students from schools around the state. Two alumni played prominent roles: the keynote speaker was Bruce Livingston ’65, founder of a new playwriting program for marginalized youth, and Oregon state representative Diane Rosenbaum ’71 led a workshop on SACS students tax reform and K-12 education. Among the topics the participants explored— some with outside organizations such as Planned Parenthood—were healthcare, homelessness, nonviolent communication, and community partnerships.
