Elsewhere on the Web

Ferris State University's Writings on the Wall Project @ FSU has parallels at other institutions around the country. At many of these institutions, the project is referred to as the Writing on the Wall Project, Wall of Oppression, or similar name.  Regardless of the name, each project aims to bring awareness to and positive action against oppression, hate, and discrimination.

We provide here links to web pages, YouTube videos, etc. that document this project at other institutions.
