    NASCC - Native American Student & Community Center

    On this week's episode we talk with the Native American Student & Community Center (NASCC) about their community, how to get involved and engage both within NASCC and the PSU community as a whole, & the impacts of systemic racism on health and community. 

    Special thanks to Trevino Brings Plenty, Yolonda Salguiero, & Robert Franklin for being a part of this episode

    Transcription) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bqhSry3e4kuXzxMyb5i41Fdk7HLvvK8g/view?usp=sharing 



    Coming Soon: (As of Winter Term 2021) 

    A project that is in the works, is the renaming of the street that the NASCC is located on. Currently the street is named Jackson St. after Andrew Jackson a U.S. President who took part in creating a legacy that does not need to be celebrated or memorialized. If you are interested in pushing this project forward, please reach out to the President's Office to make sure that it stays on top of the agenda. You can also reach out to the NASCC to be involved in the process of what the new street name should be, once the project moves past the City of Portland & PSU's President's Office. 

    Remember, our voices are powerful!!
