The Associated Student Council (ASC), Magic of Cinema, ʔaʔk̓ʷustəƞáwt̓xʷ House of Learning, PC Longhouse, and Studium Generale welcome the community to Dream Week. Peninsula College is partnering with The Port Angeles Racial Justice Collective on events to commemorate the week, and are grateful for their contributions and for the generous support from the PC Foundation to make such programming possible.
Dream Week honors Dr. Martin Luther King's legacy, his emphasis on "remaining awake," and his lessons focused on the "three evils of society: racism, materialism, and militarism." King's urgent teachings are relevant today, and the college is committed to bringing educational opportunities to campus and the greater community.
January 14 Studium Generale: Dr. Jeaninne Wallace will present, "The Transformational Leadership of Bayard Rustin," followed by a conversation with students and community members.” Join via Zoom at: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82419155703
