Poverty Action Week

November 10 – 17, 2018

"Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice." - Nelson Mandela

Each year, one week before Thanksgiving, National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is celebrated nationally. During this week, OSU takes part in a nationwide effort to bring greater awareness to and increase understanding of the issues of poverty, food insecurity, hunger and homelessness. OSU uses an alternative title for this week to bring attention to poverty as a root cause of hunger and homelessness and to call for action in addition to increased awareness. At OSU, this week is collaboratively coordinated by the CCE and the Human Services and Resource Center.

Civic Engagement Week

February 23 – March 2, 2019

We will also be working on spotlighting and celebrating the work of local community organizations and students who are actively working towards a more just, sustainable community.
