In the sixth and final episode of our series, KCSB’s Daniel Huecias and the Daily Nexus’ Holly Rusch explore activism in Isla Vista through a series of interviews, amplifying the voices behind local political and social movements.
We speak with Taylor Clark, co-chair of UCSB’s Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA), and Maya Sinha, a member of the Cops Off Campus Coalition, to discuss the momentum of social movements throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Pauline Yang and Amy Tran, the co-founders of UCSB’s Asian Coalition, bring focus to #STOPASIANHATE. Additionally, 2020-21 University of California Student Regent and UCSB graduate student Jamaal Muwwakkil discusses his hopes for collective organizing in the midst of an unprecedented social awakening.
