USSA Leg conference Diversity guidelines

Posted on January 23, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Hey Beautiful People,

I hope everyone one in the world sees this, here is all of the information for the Leg conference coming up March

There are diversity guidelines for your delegations, and it is to encourage student gov’ts who aren’t always represented at the campus to start creating that consciences and recruit folks to go to the conference from there. I really believe the a diverse representation is needed at congress to make the decisions, but at Leg Con this still applies, if your campus has problems contacting people from different communities or don’t know what that means contact me! please!

Here is the section in the constitution, which can be found online usstudents.org, check it out ūüôā

2. All delegations of three (3) or more must have among that delegation at least one (1) person of color and at least one (1) woman delegate, who shall not be the same person. Delegations of five (5) or more must fill the following diversity guidelines: 1. 5: 1 woman, 1 woman of color, 1 person of color, 1 queer, nontraditional, student with disability, veteran, international student or working class student. 2. 6: 1 woman, 1 woman of color, 1 person of color, 1 queer, nontraditional, student with disability, veteran, or international student or working class student. 3. 7: 1 woman, 1 woman of color, 1 person of color, 1 queer, 1 nontraditional, student with disability, veteran, or international student, 1 working class student. 4. 8: 2 women, 1 woman of color, 2 people of color, 1 queer, 1 nontraditional, student with disability, veteran, or international student, 1 working class student. 5. 9: 3 women, 1 woman of color, 2 people of color, 1 queer of color, 1 non-traditional, student with disability, veteran, or international student, 1 working class student. 6. 10: 4 women, 1 woman of color, 2 people of color, 1 queer of color, 1 non-traditional, student with disability, veteran, or international student, 1 working class student. 7. 11: 4 women, 1 woman of color, 2 people of color, 1 queer, 1 queer of color, 1 non-traditional, student with disability, or international student, 1 working class student. 8.
