AMPLIFY Podcast: The May 22 Puksta Scholars Edition

Today’s show looks at a coalition to expand voting rights to immigrant residents in Boulder County, a project developed through the Puksta Scholars program at CU Boulder. The coalition is leading the movement to generate dialogues surrounding our country’s history of voting rights. Through their outreach, they will built the coalition even further to recruit volunteers for a ballot initiative in 2020, sustain our relationship with city council, and run focus groups within communities most impacted by this issue. The coalition strongly believes that every person deserves representation and the ability to make decisions on where they live. the show is hosted by Soraya Latiff who works for the Center for Community Based Research and Learning at CU Boulder. In her role at CU she works in storytelling for the Center and also worked as Project Manager for Puksta Scholars and had the pleasure of working closely with one of this episode’s guest, Emma Piller. Emma Piller who grew up in Lafayette, Colorado and just graduated from CU Boulder this May with a degree in English and a minor in Spanish and Leadership. Immigrant rights has always been a passion of hers and she aspires to become an immigration attorney. In her time at CU she was a part of the Puksta Foundation Scholarship that promoted civic engagement through scholarships. Her Puksta project explored the immigrant experience in Boulder County and in her third year at CU, Emma and seven of her peers joined together to expand voting rights to residents without full citizenship. In 2017, Emma and the team created a coalition to work in the Boulder community with the intention of generating dialogue on what it means to practice citizenship. Gabo Ortiz-Peña graduated from CU Boulder with his masters in Astrophysics and has been involved with the coalition since December 2017. He was at the INVST kick-off event where they had some great conversations around voting rights, and from there he ended up joining the coalition. He has been mostly involved in organizational and planning work, but also did a bit of outreach last summer.

AMPLIFY Podcast: The March 27 Public Achievement Edition

This month, AMPLIFY host Roudy Hildreth speaks with guests Carmen Mabee and Karina Adabe, both of whom are current students participating in CU Boulder’s Public Achievement Program as TA’s, or Teaching Assistants. At CU Boulder, undergraduate students serve as Public Achievement, or “PA” coaches alongside K-12 students in Boulder and Lafayette. Together, students participate in a year-long cycle of inquiry and action around school and community based social justice issues. All participants gain insight on community leadership, the foundations of social change, and the power of relationships. Public Achievement challenges traditional notions of citizen participation by placing young people in the center of their civic environment. Public Achievement was developed in 1990 by the Center for Democracy and Citizenship at the University of Minnesota (now at Augsburg College). The founder of Public Achievement, Harry Boyte, worked for the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a field secretary with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in the Civil Rights Movement. This experience led to the creation of Public Achievement; the impact of young people shaping society through organizing and civic participation is a legacy we continue in our work with PA. University of Colorado Boulder’s Public Achievement program is housed within CU Engage. CU Engage is CU Boulder’s center for community-based learning and research in the School of Education. PA provides CU Boulder undergraduates with a meaningful opportunity of applied learning that explores education as a tool for democracy and social change. Thanks so much for listening, and welcome to the show!
