This is an incredible opportunity to learn about the most marginalized communities of Spokane, walk with the poor and vulnerable, and practice servant leadership within complex social justice issues. As a participant, you will enjoy the insight and reflection of your peers, learn from moments of discomfort, and be challenged to embrace the differences that so often divide us.
This year, the Spokane Plunge is designed to engage systems of environmental injustice, particularly that of food justice and material waste. Together, our goal is to learn about these issues through service to our community, asking what it means to imagine a zero waste future for Gonzaga Prep and even Spokane. In our three days, participants will work with their hands, walk the streets of Spokane, listen to speakers, read and reflect, share, ask questions, and explore what it means to tackle big issues in meaningful ways.
