Saudi Women Enforce Freedom of ExpressionPresentation Year: 2018

- Armeda ReitzelCommunicationFaculty
This project promotes freedom of expression in today’s world by demonstrating advocates in a hostile society creating a movement to show women can be just as competent as men. It is important to acknowledge women are still fighting to receive the benefits of equality in other countries. Women in all parts of the world should be able to engage and contribute within any given community to enhance the quality of society. I find it amazing that women advocates in Saudi Arabia risked their lives, ruined their reputation, and even lost their jobs in order to support the movement by demonstrating their freedom of expression.

- Amy MathiesonSocial WorkGraduate Student
For our project we want to focus on bridging divides between students of color and the community. To address this need, we are designing a media campaign called "We Are Your Community." This media campaign will consist of posters in business windows, short videos on social media and a website, and a community building event where students and community members can interact. The media campaign will highlight the stories of students of color and the nuances of their positive and negative experiences in Humboldt County.
