UNI SAVE (Students Advocating for Voices and Equality) is a student-led group that works to create conversations that explores social justice here at UNI and in the Cedar Valley. The group seeks a more equitable environment, inclusive of all people, through activism and advocacy. We use dialogue, workshopping, storytelling, and performance to facilitate community engagement in social change work. In addition to our performances and workshops we strive to pair with other organizations on campus and in the community to create a safer environment for all.

The group has worked with various campus audiences, including first year students, athletes, fraternities and sororities, men's groups, co-curricular organizations, and students in a variety of liberal arts classes at UNI. They also have presented for groups in Nebraska, North Carolina, Missouri, Oregon, Minnesota, and Kansas. Workshops are custom-made for various audiences in order to address issues that are directly connected to their lives.

If you would like to request a workshop or performance for your class, organization, or event, please contact Amandajean Nolte.
