At the Jan. 23 Student Government Association meeting, two clubs from the Dahlonega campus, the Dahlonega Feminist Egalitarian Movement and the Living Room On Campus, came to the meeting to gain status of recognition on the Student Life Committee in order to be able to gain allocated funds from SGA.
The Dahlonega Feminist Egalitarian Movement, which was co-founded by Anna-Grace Kidd, already has about 25 members as of this writing.
“The club’s mission statement is as follows:” Kidd said. “The Dahlonega Feminist Egalitarian Movement is an organization established for the promotion of education, justice, and support of all people, and the destigmatization of feminism in modern society.”
The DFEM plans to hold several campaigns with booths in front of Hoag and to also team up with organizations such as No One Alone to help fundraise, Kidd said.
“We want to combat harmful stereotypes, gender norms, and socio-cultural expectations in order to promote equality through education and advocacy,” said Kidd.
Mark Werner and Justin Trammell came to the meeting to talk about the “Living Room On Campus, the Dahlonega outreach program of the Living Room North”
“The Living Room North is a college based ministry at Browns Bridge church that helps young adults learn more about and connect with their Heavenly Father,” Trammell said.
Along with being a campus outreach program for Browns Bridge, the Living Room on Campus aims to host charitable events that people on campus can volunteer for or donate to.
After both clubs were voted in, the meeting’s primary focus shifted to upcoming events super as a Homecoming on Feb. 4, a Super Bowl Party on Feb. 5, and the Sweetheart Review on Feb. 10.
SGA also addressed that Parking Services will be giving out tickets now from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
After the SGA meeting, Haley Spires, a senior studying business managment, was elected as the SGA Senior Representative for the remainder of the year.
