In Our Backyard
The Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding (CSJHU) recognizes that when incidents occur and issues arise in our surrounding communities, they impact the day to day lives of our Suffolk County Community College students.
Most recently, our college community has been deeply affected by the violent incidents and increase in gang activity within areas surrounding our campuses. In response to these incidents the CSJHU, in collaboration with the College Wide Office of Multicultural Affairs and College Campus Activities, would like to introduce a new and ongoing program entitled, “In Our Backyard”.
In Our Backyard is a forum created to offer a safe and supportive environment for our students to discuss and share their feelings, thoughts and concerns regarding these incidents as well as organized training to develop productive ways to respond through community advocacy and engagement.
The first in the series will take place College wide, on Monday, May 1st during common hour (11am – 12 pm) at the following locations on each campus.
- Ammerman – Mildred Green Room, Babylon Student Center
- Eastern – Montauk Learning Resource Center 107/108
- Grant – Sagtikos 130 A&B (The Theater Mezzanine)
