Yesterday, we headed over to Howard University–well, one of the sidewalks near Howard University–in order to pass out information to the students who live off-campus. We didn’t want to cause any problems for ourselves by doing something crazy like visiting the campus without an invitation and using washable spray chalk to give students information. Who’d do a thing like that?!
So, we visited the campus and passed out information from the public space about This Should Be Illegal to students so that they could be aware of the services that the Department of Consumer & Regulatory Affairs offers to District residents. We hope to soon be invited again to an official campus event at Howard U so that we can reach out to even more students.
We made a beeline over to Catholic University’s campus to see if we could find a good public space area to reach out to students, but we were unable to find a good flow of foot traffic there. So, Catholic U, we are still waiting for that invitation to come out and give your students this valuable information!
Also, not to be missed are photos from the kickoff of National Campus Fire Safety Month, which we participated in on Capitol Hill last week. The event was well-attended and at times, quite emotional as the mother of a student killed in an off-campus fire told her story.
If your campus is having an event that you think we’d be a good fit for, feel free to contact us using one of the various methods mentioned here at This Should Be Illegal. Have a great weekend and be safe!
