The First 100 Days: A living, breathing collection of activism at Princeton University in 2017 Student rallies. National marches. Teach-ins and town hall meetings. Legal challenges. Post-card campaigns. Benefit concerts. Since the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States in January 2017, Princeton University students, staff, faculty and administrators have stood up, spoken out and engaged on campus, in the community, and across the country. So how do we capture the feeling and sentiment of campus at this time, and preserve and document what’s taking place for future study?
The First 100 Days is a collaboration between the Pace Center for Civic Engagement, Women*s Center, Princeton University Libraries and Princeton Progressive to both highlight the power and impact of campus activism and also capture and record community actions, ideas and responses for future generations of students and researchers. The First 100 Days will include two events in March and April to collect, document and record the many ways the campus community is taking action and culminate in a physical exhibit of activism in May 2017.
Bring your posters, buttons, speeches, art, poetry, music, photographs- whatever documentation you have of your activism- to our event for collection! And if you can't part with it, we understand- bring it to be photographed!
