Civic Engagement


Hassan’s vision for his campus and his community in southern California is to have LGBT youth gain the knowledge, know-how, and resources to become engaged in the democratic process. He wants to see their voices represented clearly and concisely so that they may utilize this watershed moment to its full potential. Hassan plans is connecting LGBT youth and students in his community with the resources and know-how to register to vote, identify legislative districts, recognize salient pieces of state and federal legislation, and sufficiently lobby their elected officials through a series of workshops and trainings. He will educate the LGBT youth on his campus and at various centers across Southern California on their own rights in California, on the rights of many across this nation, and for those around the world.
