Social Action

We want to provide an opportunity for our
students and Bay Area high schools
and our students to showcase their ideas
and abilities as they thoughtfully
join the national discussion about gun violence
in schools in hopes of inspiring renewed
efforts to protect America's youth. 

Letter to Bay Area High Schools

Public responses, powerful and committed, have inspired life-changing actions
throughout American history.

After the 2017 Charlottesville, Virginia racial incident made national headlines,
the SJSU Journalism School enabled students, faculty and community members to
candidly discuss their personal experiences with racism
as a listening and learning opportunity.

The goal is to create a safe environment where the discovery of similar experiences
 becomes a familiar and comfortable practice for a better
understanding of what all cultures face in America today.

From that common ground, progress and solutions can be found.
