“In the first year of the initiative, BMHI Peer Leaders engaged with groundbreaking scholars, inspiring activists, and experienced practitioners. It has been wonderful to see them grow into their own power as advocates for the reproductive health equity issues they feel so strongly about,” said Natalia Sucre, Director of Library Services for Metropolitan College of New York, “Now they are ready to take further community action themselves, and this is what the TD grant will support.”
MCNY serves a large population of Black and Brown adult students with undergraduate and graduate programs in human services, public policy, healthcare systems management, emergency management, education and community health education. The College’s mission, to promote social justice, and encourage positive change in workplaces and communities, along with the demographics of its student body and fields of study perfectly aligns with bringing awareness and solutions to disparities, inequities and inequalities.
