HRC Mississippi staff, including myself, had the privilege to speak to a public relations class at the Meek School of Journalism and New Media at the University of Mississippi. This was an opportunity share our advocacy work and our efforts to change hearts and minds in Mississippi.
As a public relations major at Mississippi State University, I utilized this occasion to talk to the students about how I use the skills I learned in college to affect change in our state.
I also spoke about our internship program each semester, which teaches valuable skills to become an LGBTQ advocate and leader.
HRC Mississippi is proud of the relationships we’ve built on college and university campuses across our state. Together with staff and students, our work is succeeding in creating safe and welcoming campuses for LGBTQ students while also getting more young people engaged with the important work for equality in Mississippi.
