The Tunxis Political Awareness Club is an official campus organization sanctioned by the Student Government Association (SGA). Its purpose is to bring civil discourse and multiple points of view to our political culture and to find comprehensive solutions to today’s political, social, and cultural challenges. In a polarized nation such as ours, educational institutions have a responsibility to instill the ideals of mutual respect, cooperation, and civility in our student body. This is done by having meetings, hosting forums, and creating podcasts. The Club is looking for new members this semester. All are welcome to join regardless of ideology or political affiliation.
The Club can be contacted by emailing TunxisPAC2017@gmail.com. You can also contact club faculty advisor, Dr. Rafaele Fierro, professor of history and government, at firstname.lastname@example.org
