Everyone has a story and experiences with racism in America.
When we hear those stories, we find we're not alone.



When we come together, we inspire hope,
and learn we have more in common than not.

religious leaders and many others over time. 

Updates will be shared with the
campus community throughout this academic year.

What better time in America than NOW to finally rise to this occasion
and address how racism hides in and under minds our society

Our personal experiences and voices are powerful.
Collectively we can now openly work to eradicate this hideous social
cancer that eats at America. 

Together we can teach this new generation how to use their voices and actions,
not just texts and tweets, to be a part of our nation's proud tradition
of courageous global leadership.

Our diversity at SJSU inspires others to see how including all cultures benefits,
and truly matters, in every aspect of American life.

 


The SJSU School of Journalism & Mass Communications invites 
YOU to join us, share candidly,
and help make a difference in our time!


This is media
education recognized for excellence across
the nation, and around the world! 

 

Our JMC School Motto: "Learn By Doing."
