Students for Peace and Social Justice


Elon's Students for Peace and Social Justice aim to promote social awareness, open-mindedness, and activism to create a more peaceful and inclusive campus environment.

We define peace as harmonious living with our core values being love, respect, and appreciation for all living things.

We define activism as coming together, despite differences, to work towards a common goal in a nonviolent manner.

"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
-Robert F. Kennedy
