Join us for our upcoming Dorothy Height Social Justice Club of “Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands” by Kate Beaton

In partnership with our Sexual Assault Prevention and Counseling Center for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we are pleased to provide an opportunity to come together and discuss “Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands”, a graphic novel by Kate Beaton.

“Ducks” is an autobiographical account of Kate Beaton who worked in the oil sands in Canada to pay off her student loans. There she encounters a harsh reality of unsafe working conditions and trauma that went largely ignored by everyone who worked there
