The Good Mule Project

Purpose

The Good Mule Project is an event series at the University of Wyoming fostering a community of dialogue and action around issues of multiculturalism and diversity through the lens of social justice activism.

What's in a name?

The Good Mule Project’s name recognizes the steadfast and resilient nature of the mule. Our communities are facing vast and complex issues and are in need of individuals with personal stories, ideas, and talents to be committed to the continual process required of creating positive change through social justice activism. The Good Mule Project seeks to impart the nature of the mule onto such individuals we encounter as social justice activists.

Daryl Davis will be presenting on his hands-on experiences with racial issues.

As a black man, endeavors such as these are an especially distinctive tactic for addressing race issues.
