“I have developed a sense of community and found my social justice niche…I see the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender and social class in populations such as the homeless and other transient communities, as well as the LGBTQ community.”
-Lucas Demonte, Program Alum

“I asked more questions, I looked at things differently and began growing into myself in a way that felt genuine. After my epiphany, I officially changed my major to Women Studies and searched for creative ways to marry my interests. I put a gender lens on African Studies, Latin American studies, literature, and Haitian Vodou.”
-Cynthia Valdez, Program Alum
