Take action against unjust low wages

This year’s Summit on globalization spoke about how we must be citizens of the world and how we must help those who are oppressed by big business, though doing this may conflict with political ideas.

It is important for one with strong views who may oppose the suggestions presented by the speakers of the Summit to remember that the Summit is not on globalization; it is a summit on human dignity through the lens of globalization.

The main focus of this Summit, and the ones of the past, was to realize that there are people all over the world being robbed of their dignity.

Jonathon Jarvis, an interaction and media designer, managed to lay out the situation in his animated short film “The Crisis of Credit,” which can be found on YouTube.

Student committee prepares workshops, field trips

About 20 Brophy students ranging from sophomores to seniors engage in a back and forth conversation in room K-10 in early January trying to get the last minute details ready for this year’s Summit on Human Dignity.

This group of students, officially known as the Student Summit Planning Committee, has been working hard since October to offer students a Summit they can not only relate to, but enjoy and learn from to make changes in their life.
