Racial Justice


This project seeks to create and implement an alumni network for Gatorship, a social justice education retreat program at the University of Florida. Through 4 weekend retreats, Gatorship educates 300+ students on diversity and social justice issues each year. The program is run by a team of 2-4 Directors and 14-17 Assistant Directors, as well as an Advisor. Since staff members are heavily involved in and committed to the program, the alumni network will begin as exclusively for current and past staff members. It will seek to provide past staff members with updates about the program, advocacy opportunities, and relevant information catered to their wants and needs. It will also serve the program by creating a steady stream of testimonials from which to use in marketing, as well as help make fundraising for the program easier.
