Sustainable Futures Association (SFA) partnered with Keweenaw Pride at Michigan Tech to put on the Spring Festival of Love, Arts, Radiance, and Empowerment, also known as Spring FLARE, on March 29. It was held in the lobby of the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts.
It was open to the local community and student organizations. Individual students, student organizations, and local companies set up booths with different activities. Co-president of Keweenaw Pride at Michigan Tech, Kieran Rowen, wanted to clarify it was not an event in response to Brandon Tatum speaking at Tech.
Recently, Michigan upheld inclusivity and diversity laws, and SFA wanted to celebrate the fact with an event.
Rowen also said that this spring semester is the last one for some members of Keweenaw Pride, and wanted one more event. The event was very successful, with just over 500 people in attendance (not including the people running the booths, musicians, or those who showed up early).
