Food With Spirit

  • Food With Spirit is a Seattle University group intended to foster an inclusive community of individuals passionate about urban agriculture and food justice. Food with Spirit aims to promote healthier and more sustainable consumer choices by reframing agriculture on a local scale to help students be more conscious of their purchasing power and empowering students to grow some of their own food. Every two weeks, we gather for communal dinners which consist of food grown on campus and locally sourced ingredients. We grow and harvest seasonal food crops for local food banks, host garden parties to help maintain the Chardin, Broadway, and Yobi on-campus community gardens, and organize environmentally focused events.

EcoSangha Zen Community1.53x1.53 inches in powerpoint

  • To be a Buddhist is to be both an ecologist and a conservationist. This is the vision EcoSangha strives to promote. It is a vision modeled on the Buddha as the Great Physician who is called to the service of those in pain and suffering, who scientifically investigates the nature of and prognosis for an ailment and then compassionately effects a cure. The progression from symptom to cure is presented by the Buddha in his fundamental teaching of the Four Noble Truths: symptom, diagnosis, prognosis and cure.

Sustainable Student Action 

  • We are an environmental justice group that engages in political education, student organizing, direct action, and solidarity efforts. Our framework for understanding and addressing the complicated issue of climate change includes analyses of the science behind greenhouse gas emissions, the interplay of environmental racism and ecological degradation, economic systems that contribute to climate change, and is rooted in democratic rather than hierarchical leadership development. We led the campaign to divest the University's endowment from fossil fuels for the past six years and finally succeeded at achieving divestment, although it's only partial. We are now working on finding a new focus for SSA. We always welcome new members no matter what your major or experience with student activism, come through and join the movement for environmental justice!

The Gender Justice Center 

  • The Gender Justice Center is a student-led organization that provides social support and resources for women, trans folks, and gender-queer students, especially students of color, on SU’s campus. As a center we are focused on creating a space where anyone can come to learn about current issues/ways to resist and to receive support without facing judgment for not knowing. We seek to strengthen the community through providing a liberating space where folks can grow and make mistakes without judgment. We value collaboration, open-mindedness, love, dignity, and transformative justice.
