99 VOICES:  A KCC Social Justice Task Force

Dialogue  |  Education  | Transformation 

99 Voices is a task force at Kingsborough that seeks to foster campus community and

to effect positive change in U.S. social life through convening social justice symposia. 

The work of the group is organized around issues of anti-black racism and institutional

violence, particuarly as these structures impact students of the college.
