Feminist CampusFeminist Majority Alliance of University of Southern Indiana

Social Justice Issues: gender equality, human trafficking, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence

Our group focuses on women’s rights and issues. From the Feminist Campus website:

"In a nutshell, Feminist Campus exists to ensure that every college and university campus has a thriving feminist presence. We help students start new feminist groups on campuses (often called Feminist Majority Leadership Alliances, or FMLAs) and team up with existing student organizations that wish to affiliate with Feminist Campus to gain access to Feminist Majority Foundation resources. Together, these groups make up a nationwide network of pro-choice, progressive, student-run, feminist activist organizations."

The Thirst Project at USI

Social Justice Issues: global water crisis 

The Thirst Project @ USI, as a branch of the Thirst Project, exists to raise awareness and bring solutions to the global water crisis by empowering individuals to take action and create radical change in others’ lives.

From The Thirst Project website:

Thirst Project is a nonprofit organization that works with the support of young people to END the global water crisis by building freshwater wells in developing communities that need safe, clean drinking water. Why Water? Health and Sanitation: Waterborne diseases kill more children every single year than HIV, Malaria, and all world violence combined. Small children typically do not have strong enough immune systems to fight diseases like cholera, dysentery, or schistosomiasis.
