Student Organizations Rally for Standing Rock

Asst. News Editor

Throughout the month of November, student organizations at Fordham’s Lincoln Center (FLC) campus  gathered in solidarity with the Dakota Access Pipeline protests taking place on Standing Rock Reservation, North Dakota. Not only did students participate in sharing information directly from protesters on social media, but also held a meditation for awareness and a bake sale to benefit protesters’ winter preparations.

Fordham Promotes Voter Registration

Asst. News Editor

The deadlines for this general election’s voting registration window are fast approaching, with New York’s falling on Oct. 14. At Fordham Lincoln Center, students are urged by peer leaders and university faculty to get themselves registered, especially those who come from ’swing states.’

A swing state is one in which the two major political parties’ supporters number nearly the same, and are often considered bellwethers for election outcomes. According to Politico, the important 11 swing states in the 2016 general election are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Political science professor Zein Murib said, “If you are a student at Fordham from Wisconsin or Colorado or Nevada, you should definitely be voting in Wisconsin or Colorado or Nevada. But overall, you should be voting, period.”

New Observer Stories

Today the new issue of The Fordham Observer went up, but one of my articles and my photo essay have been delayed in publishing until next week.

Despite this, my coverage of a particularly powerful Fordham College at Lincoln Center event did run, you can read it here. The event was titled “The Revolution Will Be Televised,” and featured panelists from around New York City who work with nonprofit organizations and BlackLivesMatter.

I also prepared a photo essay on the Bernie Sanders march with some great info and commentary by another Fordham student, Eileen Kelley (FCLC ’17). Check out the full collection of photographs on my Flickr and here is the photo essay.

The photography team also put together an interesting photo essay about NYC food.

The Broadway show story that I was assigned to has unfortunately been pulled altogether, but coming up I do have one investigative piece, an event coverage, and another couple of photo spots.

Bernie Sanders March

February 27, 2016

I had the pleasure of attending the Movement4Bernie March For Bernie NYC number two at the end of February. The event lasted three hours and was escorted by the police from Union Square to Zuccotti Park. The group made quite a stir in the Wall Street area, with people coming out of apartments and office buildings to take pictures on their phones.

Check out my full collection of photographs on my Flickr. I have also prepared a photo essay for The Fordham Observer which should run this week, and a link to which I will post here. (Edit April 6: It’s been up for a couple of weeks now)
