Fighting for the Future: Political Engagement and Student Leadership
Visit https://queenslibrary.aviaryplatform.com/r/0k2697084n for a recording of this event.
Across New York City and the country, students are organizing and taking part in multiple struggles for racial, social, and economic justice. With students hopeful for a more diverse and equitable future, programs like Queens College SEEK and the Center for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Understanding (CERRU) are fostering collaboration and leadership skills among students, with several recent SEEK graduates embarking on successful political careers. As we look to the new generation of students for tomorrow’s future, Queens Memory and Queens College Library invites student leaders, administrators, and community organizers to discuss everyday activism and leadership potential in all students, how colleges can better support students in these endeavors, and opportunities for political action and engagement post-college.
This program is sponsored by the Queens Memory COVID-19 Project of Queens College and Queens Public Library.
