In the observance of the Lasallian Human Rights and Democracy Week and the International Lasallian Days for Peace, the Social Transformation through Advocacy and Reforms (STAR) arm of the LCDC is spearheading several activities to promote social consciousness and awareness among the DLSU-D community.
To kick off the series, the LCDC recently facilitated the Kapihang Milenyal for Student Leaders and Volunteers to spark the conversation on key issues affecting millennials. A Holy Mass in Remembrance of All Victims of Martial Law Human Rights Violations was also held at the University Chapel.
Also among the highlights of the observance of the LHRD Week and ILDP is the Human Rights and Democracy Exhibit which will last for the entire month of October at the 3rd Floor, Julian Felipe Hall. The exhibit highlights the significance of an active citizenry in protecting human rights with the resistance of the Filipino people to Martial Law as a model.
The final activity will happen on October 12 from 1-4 pm at the Alumni Auditorium. Entitled “Unfolding the Political Self: The Youth in Nation Building,” this forum aims to promote active citizenship and strengthen democratic competencies of the Lasallian youth. It is hoped that participants will be able to engage in political discussions based on Lasallian Guiding Principles and Catholic Social Teachings through these activities.
