UNI SAVE (Students Advocating for Voices and Equality) is a student-led group that works to create conversations that explore social justice here at UNI and in the Cedar Valley. Our group seeks a more equitable environment, inclusive of all people, through activism and advocacy. We use dialogue, workshopping, storytelling, and performance to facilitate community engagement in social change. In addition to our performances and workshops we strive to pair with other organizations on campus and in the community to create a safer environment for all.
