Student Bulletin Episode 3 Part 2

UC Berkeley Offers Growth & Mentorship to BHS Students
We are living through rapid, multidimensional change. We are talking about
climate change, increasing global inequality, the fate of our democracy,
Black Lives Matter, free higher education, universal health care, gender
disparities, and to top it off, we are living through a global pandemic.
Who is at the nexus of it all? YOU. Young people are taking on these
challenges and spearheading movements around the world. Members of UC
Berkeley would like to help.
UC Berkeley is piloting a weekly panel series (via Zoom) exclusively to
Berkeley High, starting on September 23rd. The panels will feature
presentations from graduate students, faculty, and researchers on current
social issues: the environment, poverty, democracy, race, education,
health, gender, and the covid recession. Presenters will speak about their
personal interest on these issues and how they are grappling with them in
their work. Then they’ll answer your questions, and hear your thoughts. And
they’d like to help you forge your own path!
The schedule will look like this across the 8 week panel series:
September 23rd: Environment
September 30th: Poverty/Inequality
October 7th: Democracy
October 14th: Race
October 21st: Education
October 28th: Health
November 4th: Gender
November 11th: COVID-19 recession

Following the panel discussion, if you are interested in:Hearing more about
what is going on at UC BerkeleyStarting a local or global

opportunities awaiting you in collegeOr any other collaborative experience
you would like to bring forward…… you can enlist the support of a UCB
panelist though a mentorship program.

Please join us, Wednesdays at 4pm. (Zoom link forthcoming).

Apply to be a poll worker!
Will you be 16 by the November elections? Do you want to find a way to make
sure every vote gets counted? Apply to be a poll worker! Even though
California will be mainly voting by mail in November, some polling stations
are required to stay open. If there aren't enough people to work the polls,
some will be forced to close. If this happens, it will be much more
difficult for people who are relying on in-person voting. They would
potentially have to rush to a polling station far away- and if they can't
make it in time, their vote may never be counted. With many older people
who usually serve as poll workers are choosing to stay home this year due
to COVID-19, there is a shortage of poll workers. This election, we need to
show up. If we can't vote, we need to make sure that those who are able to
vote do. Sign up at www.pollhero.org and a high school or college student
volunteer will connect you with Alameda county's election official.

*Harm Education Response Organization*
Hey folks. How good are you at creating Tik Tok videos? Do you have art or
music skills?  Are you looking for something to do that will break up the
monotony and give you something to get juiced about? HERO might be the peer
group for you.
If you or someone you know has been harmed by drugs, if you're interested
in learning and teaching factual information to keep drug users safe, or
you believe that education and support is preferable to stigma and
punishment, then HERO might be your cup of tea.
We need people of all backgrounds and viewpoints because drugs affect all
of us in different ways. You can be as involved as deeply as you want, from
class presentations, to making art, to brainstorming ideas to reach the
masses. The point is to make this yours, make it relevant, and make it
fun. But it can't happen without you!
