Navigating Public Life in a Diverse Democracy

Local People, Local Work, Local Change: Navigating Public Life in a Diverse Democracy–our speaker series that explores practitioners' journey working with communities to generate meaningful change. We will be joined by Andres Mejia, District Director of DEIJ at New Hampshire SAU 16. We'll be asking Andres about his experiences navigating the hopes and expectations of families in building a culture of inclusion in school.

Andres has spent the past five years working at the University of New Hampshire implementing diversity initiatives and spearheading underrepresented students support and helping leaders across campus–from student organizers to faculty and administrators–to become more culturally competent of folks marginalized within people of color and LGBTQAI+ communities and folks of various other marginalized groups.

Andres graduated from UNH class of 2014 and 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Social Work, with minors in Women's Studies and Race, Culture, Power; and a Master's degree in Community Development and Policy.

This series will be available online AND in-person!
