Past Events

1:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join SCRWP in volunteering & fundraising for Books Through Bars! BTB sends free books to people incarcerated in PA and nearby states. Books have been shown to make a huge difference in the life of inmates, especially when they try to readjust to society after prison.

4:23 pm - 8:00 pm

As the holidays approach, SCRWP is hosting a Dinner & Discussion on "How to Respond to Racism from Family". We'll start with two groups for people of color and white folks to discuss separately the barriers to addressing race-related issues with family and overcoming complicity, then we'll unite in one group to discuss the issues all together and debrief on conversational dynamics in multi-racial spaces. 

5:21 pm - 10:00 pm















Join GAPSA IDEAL Friday, November 10, 2017 for our biannual All Access Party! This Fall, we'll be at the Pyramid Club, atop a 52-story skyscraper in Center City. Join us for cocktails, incredible views of the city, and general celebration of our campus-wide affinity groups!

This event is 21+ only. You must bring a government-issued ID.


5:29 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us to discuss thought-provoking articles on racism and anti-racist work. No prior knowledge on these topics is required. White folks, who may have thought less about these issues, are especially encouraged to attend. All participants must come committed to doing anti-racist work, including challenging how racism has affected your own thoughts and behaviors. The goal is to gain a clearer understanding of the effects of racism on society at all levels and how to combat its virulent hold over ourselves and our culture.
