Senior in political science Nathan Lupstein of Naperville, Ill., felt the MLK march and think tank discussion being held following the march were important in overall goal of bridging cultural and social gaps on campus. Lupstein said students are focusing efforts on social activism and it's important to recognize that we need to expand these messages to the people that need them the most. "We need to help spread this as much as possible," Lupstein said. "I want to commend anyone involved in organizing this week, starting these conversations and getting people involved."
