Join Our First Student Advocacy Cohort, SLAM!
What Is SLAM?
In the Fall 2020, Swipe Out Hunger is forming its very first advocacy student network known as SLAM: Student Leaders Advancing Movements.
The SLAM network will be a learning and networking group of students from across the country activating and advocating on their campus to end hunger and move forward the movement for student basic needs.
SLAM will meet via online forums (ex: webinars and Slack channels), town halls, in-person trainings, Swipe Summits, and more! Students have the opportunity to come together to share their advocacy successes, navigate roadblocks, learn best practices from fellow students/Swipe Out Hunger staff, and set up a deeper connection with fellow students.
Who Is Eligible To Join SLAM?
Through SLAM, Swipe Out Hunger will bring together dozens of students to share their advocacy success, navigate advocacy roadblocks, learn best practices from fellow students/Swipe Out Hunger staff, and set up a deeper connection with fellow students.
Participation in SLAM is open to any student from a school that is a Swipe Out Hunger advocacy partner and will expire one year after graduation.
Advocacy partners are teams who starting in Spring 2021 will:
– Sign our Anti-Hunger pledge
– Connect Swipe Out Hunger with a student advocacy point person
– Participate in at least 3 advocacy actions/year
To learn more about having your school become an advocacy partner, e-mail Advocacy@swipehunger.org.
What Will I Commit To When I Join SLAM?
SLAM is an informal network of student leaders, but because of its small size and commitment to deep training and sharing, we ask each member of SLAM commit to participate to the fullest extent they can for a full academic year. SLAM members will convene a 1 hour call each month with additional and separate communication channels via Slack. These calls will only be offered to SLAM members and we ask that each student attend these calls or if they are unable to, they ask a student at their school to fill in.
