A brief introduction to the amazing partners and sponsors who made this event possible
Impact Living Learning Community
Jackets Beyond Walls is proud to be a project launched under Impact, Georgia Tech's newest Living Learning Community.
At Impact, undergraduate students with like-minded interests and passions come together to form a rich, tight-knit community that all live together and participate in numerous fun activities throughout the year. Most importantly, focused on the topics of Diversity, Sustainability, and Social Good, Impact invites students to explore the issues that matter most to them and their communities, providing them with the tools, resources, and support network to create innovative plans that address society's greatest issues and then bring their ideas to life.
Jackets Beyond Walls would not be possible without the help and support of this amazing Impact Community, and we are both honored and proud to be representing this incredible group of students and faculty here at Georgia Tech!
LOVE BEYOND WALLS
A Movement of Doers
Love Beyond Walls, a non-profit organization out of College Park, GA, has distinguished itself within its community for its passionate, innovative approach to helping others. From hosting various volunteer events to marching its cause all the way to the White House, Love Beyond Walls and it's movement of doers are dedicated to serving the community, bringing dignity to the homeless and poor, and helping people climb out of their difficult situations. At Love Beyond Walls, their mission goes beyond just a bag of groceries, a pair of new shoes, or a fresh, clean haircut– it's about giving love away.
Experience the Forgotten
In order to further its mission in bringing dignity and awareness to those who society tends to forget, Love Beyond Walls launched Dignity Museum: Atlanta's first museum dedicated to homelessness.
Built within a shipping container in order to mirror the experience of homelessness, Dignity Museum is a mind-blowing, thought-provoking experience that makes the most of its limited space using interactive technology and thoughtfully designed exhibits that tell the heartbreaking story of homelessness not as outsiders looking in, but from the voices of the people who are actually experiencing it. Dignity Museum is split into three sections: challenging stereotypes, creating empathy, and inspiring action, each with its own set of unforgettable true stories and powerful, inspirational message.
Jackets Beyond Walls is honored to have the opportunity of bringing this incredible museum to campus and share it with the rest of our Georgia Tech community, and we can't until the moment you are finally able to experience it for yourself!
A huge thank you to our amazing sponsors!
