Home WHAT’S NEW Assumption Student Leaders Traveling to Washington, D.C., and Atlanta

Assumption Student Leaders Traveling to Washington, D.C., and Atlanta PDF Print E-mail

WORCESTER, MA (January 14, 2016)—This month, two separate groups of Assumption College students will head to Washington, D.C., and Atlanta for hands-on educational experiences.

Twenty Assumption students will travel to Washington, D.C., from January 21-23 to participate in the annual March for Life, an organization whose mission is to provide all Americans with a place to testify to the beauty of life and the dignity of each human person. The event brings together pro-life leaders and groups to organize, unite and strategize around a common message. After the Jan. 22 march, the group will attend the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life at Georgetown University on Jan. 23.  This year’s conference will focus on the paradigm of the current debate surrounding issues of life, which revolves around the opposition between the pro-life and pro-choice positions.

Also that weekend, the offices of Student Affairs and Campus Ministry have collaborated to send four individuals from Assumption—two students and two staff—to the Interfaith Youth Core Leadership Institute in Atlanta. The Interfaith Youth Core aims to bring together young people of different religious and moral traditions for cooperative service and dialogue around shared values.  The purpose of attending this leadership event is for the four Assumption representatives to return to campus with ideas about how to foster interfaith cooperation within the Assumption community.
