Royal Roads University Student Assoication (RRUSA) and Students Against Violence (SAV) invite you to join us for a journey into the origins of discrimination, cultural stigmas, and power with Jane Elliott.

Jane Elliott was made famous in the 60's for her provocative brown eyed/blue eyed experiments she conducted on her grade three students in Iowa, following the assassination of Martin Luther King, which demonstrate a startling truth about human perception of power. Jane Elliott will be joining us via Skype to present on her work. Participants should be prepared for an interactive session, and will be invited to ask questions. We also welcome participants to register and join us remotely.

Jane Elliot's presentation will be followed by a discussion lead by powerful facilitator and educator: Chaw-Win-Is
