We Stand Together

As a student-run live laboratory, we are committed to educating ourselves on social issues in the world, as they do affect us and other students at Marist. MPorium at Marist stands in solidarity with the black community and people of color fighting against racism and injustice. As a student led business, we are dedicated to using our platform to stay educated and provide informative resources in efforts to fight inequality. We want to take a stand and help build a better future.
