Preserving the History of FAMU Way
April 25, 12 p.m.-1:30 p.m.
The city of Tallahassee’s FAMU Way Extension Project began in 2009 from Wahnish Way to Lake Bradford Road to not only meet the transportation needs of the community, but also create “the most beautiful roadway in Tallahassee.” Years later, the city included historians in the project to preserve the legacy of the area in which this new throughway was being developed. Dr. Ellis was among the historians who worked with the city and will talk about the process of collecting information from area residents in order to capture the area’s history and tell the story of the people, places, and events that have helped shape the community.
Attend One Pulse: An Evening of Healing, Unifying, and Enacting Change on April 19 at 7 p.m. in the Globe Auditorium. The event will include speeches from Florida Representative Carlos Guillermo and Pulse Nightclub shooting survivor Brandon Wolf.
Apr. 17, 1 p.m. - 3 p.m.
The seed of collaboration is often conversation. Join fellow students, faculty and staff to share a meal and explore a simple, yet powerful idea – that people from different circles can connect to co-create a better community. Seating is limited.
FSU Green Dot is excited to announce we will be hosting 2 more training sessions during the Spring ’17 semester. Green Dot is a bystander intervention program that recognizes violence is not tolerated in our community and that we all have a role to play in eliminating it. A Green Dot Bystander is someone who uses the 3 D’s (Direct, Delegate, and Distract) to intervene in reactive situations or proactively promotes the importance of a violence free community. Please visit our website for more information on the program and to add your Green Dots to the map. Also don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram!
This interactive training will seek to empower all of us to find ways to be active bystanders and create a community that does not tolerate violence and recognizes that we all have a role to play in ending it. Lunch will be provided. Those in attendance will receive a certificate of attendance and a Green Dot tee-shirt upon the completion of the training.
Training space is limited so if you’re interested, sign up today! Click below to register.
