Walk the Walk on Friday, Sept. 28

Walk the Walk, on September 28, is a tour of social justice organizations sponsored by CSW, the Morgridge Center for Public Service, Chadbourne Residential College, and University Health Services.

It offers students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to learn about social and environmental justice nonprofits right here in their neighborhood.  All walking tours include a stop at the Center for Change, to learn more about CSW and the other Center tenants.

Participants can then choose their themed route and visit nonprofits (listed below) working on: civic engagement, civil rights, or children and families.

All UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff are welcome to participate. Tours leave from the Chadbourne Residential College lobby at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 pm, rain or shine.
