United We Stand

Hellloooo 6 South!!!

I wanted to invite you to a United We Stand event that is this Sunday, February 12, where Monti Washington will be joining us in Velzy Commons at 7pm.

What is United We Stand campaign? The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Department of Residence Life believe that all residents have the right to be treated with respect. The use of hateful language or actions, discrimination, or unequal treatment will not be accepted or allowed. To support this mission, University of Wisconsin Platteville sponsor speakers dedicated to highlighting diversity education, issues on discrimination, and building an inclusive community on campus.

Who is Monti Washington? A product of a one night stand, abused in foster home after foster home, and raised sleeping in parks were just a few of the daunting obstacles in Monti’s journey from the streets to the stage. This is an interactive presentation, designed to help students gain the problem solving skills needed to be successful, both inside and outside of the classroom. Through crowd participation, story telling, and poetry, students will be engaged, encouraged, and empowered to make it from the streets of their minds, to the stage of their dreams.

Hope to see you there!
