DisOrientation 2016: Solidarity Across Struggles

Join us for this years installment of DisOrientation Week! DisOrientation is our annual week long series of events and workshops welcoming new and returning students and community members while promoting and supporting critical thinking and activism in our communities on and off campus. By bringing together a range of campus and community groups, DisO aims to draw the links between the many different kinds of political, environmental, and social justice based organizing that exists on campus and in our communities.

This year’s DisOrientation is to be held on the York University Keele campus, from Monday September 26th to Friday September 30th. Throughout the week, OPIRG and our community partners will put on a range of events, workshops, and panels. If you are interested in being part of the organizing team for DisOrientation this year please contact naila.opirgyork@gmail.com!
