Pacific University students may register online, free of charge, at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PULC2013. The conference is sponsored by the Undergraduate Student Senate. Members of the planning committee represent a wide segment of student organizations, including ACE Board, Na Haumana O Hawai'i (NHOH), ECA Core, Greek Life, and RHA.

Keynote Speaker: Eliaichi Kimaro

Activist-turned-filmmaker Eliaichi Kimaro directs 9elephants productions, a company that uses video to bring stories of struggle, resistance and survival to a broader audience. Kimaro's award-winning documentary, A Lot Like You, won accolades from the National Association of Mixed Student Organizations for "reaching across many boundaries of personal narrative; identity; political, social, and gender issues; and cross-cultural and interracial experiences." A version of Kimaro's film premiered on PBS stations nationwide January 22. Kimaro worked professionally as an activist, educator and counselor on issues related to gender violence, trauma and oppression for over 12 years before leaving for Tanzania to make A Lot Like You. In addition to producing videos about social and economic justice issues, she has led a week-long filmmaking camp for girls, and consults with non-profits to support them in producing their own videos.
