Western Kentucky University senior Emily Wilcox, from Louisville, Ky., is one of a growing “activist community” here at WKU. She uses the term activist community to describe the creation and growth of student groups such as GreenToppers and Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition (KSEC), and students “loosely organizing and doing community building” outside of organizations over the past few years.
Wilcox has been involved in arts and activism all her life. Now, she is a student in the WKU Honors College involved in a variety of student groups.
