Members of the Nrityagram Dance Ensemble of India perform a sacred Indian dance ritual, Odissi, at 'Pratima: Reflection' on Sunday in Memorial Hall. The dance
originated about the second century B.C. in the Orissa temples of India and uses prayer and poetry, along with hand gestures and facial expressions, to convey emotion.

One of the world’s oldest dance tradi

its power to convey emotion largely from
hand gestures and facial expressions.

Student activists who advocate
for women’s right to choose learned
the nuts and bolts of building stron
ger grassroots movements at a con
ference Saturday in Dey Hall.
The conference, labeled the N.C.
Reproductive Justice Action Camp,
was sponsored by Choice USA and
the N.C.-based SURGE. Students
United for a Responsible Global
Environment, a coalition of pro
gressive student organizations.
“Student organizing is very
important." said Jillian Johnson,
SURGE co-director and opera
tions manager. “People should get
involved and stay involved, mak
ing activism a lifelong work."
In addition to participating
in a series of discussions, some
students canvassed local neigh
borhoods to collect signatures in
support of a congressional bill that
would lower birth control costs.
After the canvassing. Johnson led
a session to teach students some of
the skills they need to keep youth
Johnson recommended using a
buddy system to pair experienced
group members with new members
to help them stay involved.
She also advised that student
groups keep all members involved
in the decision-making process by
requiring a consensus rather than
a simple majority vote.
“Consensus building is difficult,
but it creates stronger movements."
Organizations including Med
Students for Choice, Feminist
Students United and the Cooch Care
Collective talked about both the spe
cific issues they advocate and ways
to keep student activism alive.
“It’s about inclusion," said
Samantha Selman. a junior at Salem
College in Winston-Salem. “You
want to make people feel welcome."
Choice USA led a session for
action against Crisis Pregnancy-
Centers in Chapel Hill. The group
said that the centers' advertisements
target women who are seeking
abortioas but that the centers don’t
actually perform the procedure and
instead counsel women against it
“We are not out to be divisive and
cause problems just to get infor
mation out there," said Maureen
