Club Spotlight: Drew Roosevelt Network (DRN)
DRN’s Mission is to train, develop, and support emerging progressive policymakers, researchers, and advocates in the Drew community by supporting student-led, scalable policy campaigns that fight for the equitable provision, distribution, and accessibility of public goods at the campus, local, and state levels.
As International Students joining DRN is a great opportunity to learn more and get involved with issues you care about. The network is a welcoming environment with a solid group of other motivated students and access to local community organizers. Members will be able to gain skills from DRN’s variety of projects which are applicable to further policy work and general life skills.

Towards Racial Justice!
You’re Invited to: A series of conversations on Race and Justice
Presented by : Law, Justice and Society Program and Department of Political Science and International Relations:
Situating the contemporary debate on immigration within America’s history of indigenous dispossession, chattel slavery, the Mexican-American War, and Jim Crow, Cristina Beltrán reveals white supremacy to be white democracy—a participatory practice of racial violence, domination, and exclusion that gave white citizens the right to both wield and exceed the law. Still, Beltrán sees cause for hope in growing movements for migrant and racial justice.
Speaker: Cristina Beltrán
