#unrulysociologists fund


The #unrulysociologists is a group of individuals who have come together to use the information and skills that they have developed through their lived experiences, schooling, and interaction with others for the good of many. We have skills that can be applied to a number of issues, and consider it our duty as action-oriented social scientists to support social justice efforts to the best of our ability. We provide an umbrella for members to share expertise and passion on their focal topics as members of #unrulysociologists. We gain strength from our collective efforts, helping each other do more than any one of us could do alone.

Funding for the #unrulysociologists shall be used for the benefit and support of the group including assisting students (especially undergraduates) to attend conferences relevant to the #unrulysociologists mission, facilitating larger and more visible events, purchasing postcards for direct engagement with the political process, co-sponsoring campus events, and developing materials to share with elected officials.
