As many students who identify as first-generation and/or low-income may agree, Columbia University does not always offer the appropriate safe spaces or platforms for students to talk about issues that pertain to them. In order to raise awareness about class issues, build a first generation and/or low-income community that transcends all barriers, foster an open and respectful campus environment, engage in a cross-class dialogue, advocate on behalf of the community, lead service projects pertaining to these issues and empower first-generation low-income students at Columbia, we are looking to start a conversation amongst students about what our community needs.

We are creating age-appropriate educational curriculum that can be used in schools across the country. This will open up dialogue around consent which is the first and most important step towards creating consent culture.
