Each year, members of ODU's Social Justice Club choose to address one or two primary
issues of social injustice in the Columbus community or around the world. Examples
include AIDs awareness, human trafficking, childhood poverty and racism.
The group sponsors speakers and activities on campus such as the Hunger Banquet. They also provide voluntary service in community organizations such as the local Habitat for Humanity Store.
