SURGE

Surge is a student blog at Gettysburg College where systemic issues of justice matter. Posts are originally published at surgegettysburg.wordpress.com

Through stories and reflection, these blog entries relate personal experiences to larger issues of equity, demonstrating that –isms are structural problems, not actions defined by individual prejudice.

We intend to popularize justice, helping each other to recognize our biases and unlearn the untruths.

Surge is supported by the Center for Public Service at Gettysburg College.
