Orlan: Join the fight against HIV/AIDS

Senior Elizabeth Orlan, the legislative coordinator for GW Student Global AIDS Campaign, encourages students to get involved in social causes.

When Lupe Fiasco came to the Jack Morton Auditorium to promote the History Channel’s documentary “The People Speak,” he challenged students to find something we believe in, and fight for it. While this challenge was not broadcast to campus like Michelle Obama’s 100,000 hours community service challenge, it is equally important, and students should take its message to heart.
