Our Common Cause HBCU Student Action Alliance empowers students at North Carolina’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We’re strengthening civic engagement as we help students make their voices heard on campus, in the community, at the ballot box and in the halls of government.
Through the HBCU Student Action Alliance, our Common Cause NC Democracy Fellows are active at all 10 HBCU campuses in North Carolina, including:
- Bennett College
- Elizabeth City State University
- Fayetteville State University
- Johnson C. Smith University
- Livingstone College
- NC A&T State University
- NC Central University
- Saint Augustine’s University
- Shaw University
- Winston-Salem State University
Meet our campus coordinators:
Our campus coordinators – Vashti Hinton-Smith, Rotrina Campbell, Jazmyne Abney and Lisette Rodriguez – work side-by-side with students recruited from North Carolina's HBCUs to be Democracy Fellows. These students help develop organizing campaigns on their campus around issues of vital importance to their community and educational institution, as well as advocate for issues in the halls of state and federal government.
