 What Hamline Students Are Working On

Environment // The Environmental Task Force worked with Dining Services to get Styrofoam out of the Klas Center and the Law/Grad building.  During the Spring Semester, they hosted a huge Earth Day celebration on Old Main Lawn, with keynote speaker St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman.  The event was attended by many students who made non-toxic cleaning supplies from scratch, and got involved with our statewide Detox Minnesota! campaign by signing over fifty postcards to Governer Pawlenty in support of the legislation.

Democracy // Hamline MPIRG students helped to register young voters across the Twin Cities and partnered with nearby campuses to educate first time voters about the voting process.  In addition to voter registration efforts, HamPIRG students also participated in the Get out the Vote campaign.  On Election Day, students encouraged their peers to vote, helped run poll-line efforts to discourage voter intimidation, and keep people waiting in lines entertained with games and food. 

HamPIRG students engage their peers in the electoral process with a "white board" campaign where students shared their reasons for voting.

Social Justice // The Social Justice Task Force worked with Residential Life and placed bins in each residence hall to collect unused food and clothing.  These items were donated to Arc and the Rezik, two shelters that serve the local community.  Student leaders also organized a packed showing of The Vagina Monologues on campus, and promoted Take Back the Night, a march and rally held at the state Capitol.
