We Are Your Community - Erin Youngblood-Smith and Amy Mathieson are two Masters of Social Work (MSW) students at Humboldt State University focusing on sharing the experiences of African American students with the community. Students of color report feeling isolated and unwelcome and experience acts of discrimination in Humboldt County. In light of this and other recent events, we feel the need for student's stories to be heard is now greater than ever. For our project, four African American students were interviewed about their positive and negative experiences in Humboldt County. These video interviews will be used to create a powerful diversity campaign titled “We Are Your Community.”
These projects create a foundation for the campus and community to better understand how HSU students experience the university and surrounding areas.
Join us to learn how you can add your story and share your experiences through our interactive photo booth and testimonial posters.
