The People’s Pitzer is a student-focused initiative started in Fall of 2020 within the Pitzer College Center for Community Engagement. The goal of the program was to facilitate growth in civic engagement among the Pitzer community, with a key focus on education and empowerment, as well as introducing new meanings civic action and developing strategies for student involvement in community work. 

Past work has included voter education and voting rights, and 2021 will see a shift towards community organizing and the role students can play in affecting change within their communities. TPP will be tracing connections between civic activism, popular movements, and widespread change, and hopes to increase civic engagement at the college as a whole.

Our current projects include ongoing efforts to connect students to community groups enacting change in the greater L.A. area, hosting a multi-week speaker series of activists and scholars at the front lines of civic engagement, hosting Pitzer College’s involvement in Project Pericles Letters to an Elected Official Competition, and partnering with student groups to host various educational and action-oriented events.

Your donation is key in helping us grow our organization to provide more opportunities for students to enact change through civic action. Funding could be used to bring in more inspirational speakers, to fund student campaigns in and around the Pitzer community, to facilitate workshops for students interested in running for public office, and to assist students’ use of their civic power through reimbursements for gas money to travel to voting locations and town halls.
