Co-Curricular Activities

Kenapocomoco Coalition
Weekly meetings are held Mondays at 9 p.m. at Katy Gray Brown's home, 702 E 9th St. Coffee, tea, and popcorn are always provided for discussions centered around social justice issues. We host guest presenters often, but students and faculty typically lead meetings. Kenapoc members are interested in a diverse range of issues, so check our Facebook for a list of upcoming meeting topics.

Movie Nights
The Peace Studies Coordinator, Phil Keim, hosts film screenings about every other week on Thursdays at 8 p.m. Movies are shown at the Peace House, 1106 N Wayne St. Films are selected from a community-generated list, and the upcoming flicks will be advertised here and on Facebook.
