Darwin Day and Safety Pins

Hey SSA Members and Friends:
We had our first meeting of the semester today from 1-2:30 in Business Administration Building today. LOTS of really good ideas and neat input from club members.

We have planned our Darwin Day booth for Monday and Tuesday, February 13th and 14th from 10-2 in the campus Student Center in the cafeteria.
We are staffed for the booth, THANK YOU SSA MEMBERS!, but please STOP BY to see us and to get your pin.
What Pin?
We will have Safety Pins available to all students in support of all vulnerable populations. I know you are familiar with the movement that started in November of last year when African Americans, Women, and Muslims felt threatened by the Trump Administration. The SSA is making safety pins available on campus in support of these and all vulnerable populations.

By fastening a safety pin to their clothing, people are declaring themselves allies to groups who have been maligned by Trump, to show that they stand in solidarity with anyone who might be afraid.

SO please wear your safety pin in solidarity with the SSA and with all populations of people who feel marginalized or threatened!
What is Darwin Day?
Darwin Day is every February 12th

Darwin Day is a fantastic opportunity for Student Secular Alliance to take part in a national celebration of education and science. Groups around the country and around the world will be taking part and celebrating the birth of one of the most important scientists of the modern era.

Our Darwin Day activity is SSA's effort to take part to not only educate our own group members on the importance of Evolution and Darwin's work, but also as a way to reach out to our wider campus and community to foster a better understanding of the theory of evolution and its place in modern biology.

Please drop by and check out our Darwin Day booth on February 13th and 14th between 10 and 2pm in the Student Center Cafeteria!

MANY THANKS to the SSA members 
who are donating their time and efforts
 to our Darwin Day booth!
