Oromo Awareness Day

Oromo Awareness Day April 2013

Oromo Awareness Day at U of M 2012

The event is hosted annually by Oromia Student Union (OSU). The ballroom was decorated by Oromo artifacts, history, and pictures depicting, at times horrific, human rights violations perpetuated by the Ethiopian government.

OSU was formed, among other things, “to promote education within the [Oromo] community and create a transitional bridge for Oromo students from high school to college.” OSU hosts numerous events throughout the year to “educate the campus [University of Minnesota] community about Oromo history and culture.”
