Step Up To Injustice

Homecoming 2014 was a great time for students to take a break from class and have some fun. The annual step show, hosted by UTA’s National Pan-Hellenic Council, is one of the weekends most anticipated events. Held in Texas Hall, the event is a time to celebrate Greek pride, and earn bragging rights for a year.

Entitled, Step Up To Injustice: this year’s event sought not only to entertain but to promote social awareness. In collaboration with NAACP and sponsors, Texas Trust Bank, the event expanded this year’s completion to any organization on campus. Making this year’s Step Show, one for the ages.

CNN Weekend Coverage of Trayvon Martin

One month ago today was the day Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman. As of today, Zimmerman has still not been arrested. CNN posted a wanted flyer for Zimmerman created by the Black Panther Party, on their website this weekend. There are protests being held all over the Dallas metroplex in response to this injustice. Today the UTA NAACP will host a their own march in front of the library mall on campus. Participants will wear hoodies just as Trayvon did, as a symbol of support for Trayvon’s family and as a sign of disappointment in the officials who have yet to fairly handle the matter.
