Creatives for Social Justice gives students a creative outlet to build community with others who have identified issues in their communities and lives that call for an engaged response through embodied performance, and they have produced some amazing and powerful work that helps them and others process and respond to the world we live in.

Jeanine MingéMingé's areas of research interest include health communication, performance studies, cultural studies, and qualitative methods with all of her work dedicated to cultivating social justice through use of narrative, visual imagery, poetry, installation art, and performance.
