The City College Student Associated Council has a number of events and activities planned for this semester, including a March 15 forum on homelessness, as well as Sac City Talks and SAC elections in April.

Club and Events Board (CAEB) project coordinator Georgia Sherman said that one of the Student Senate’s concerns is homelessness and students, and interested parties are invited to discuss the issue Tuesday, March 15, from noon 2 p.m. in the Student Center. The event will be hosted by the Rotaract Club.

According to Sherman, the original concept for a conversation with students about the issue of homelessness came from City College student Colin Meinrath, who is active in student government.

The forum aims to create discussion about the way that society treats the issue of homelessness in California and to be an opportunity for community members to voice their insights, according to Sherman.

“We want people to come in,” said Sherman, “and tell them, ‘Here are some resources you can go to.’ Anyone is more than welcome to come.”

SAC also hosted a toiletry drive March 12 in the quad as part of Senior Saturday. The drive, organized by Student Senate President Marianna Sousa, accepted donations of toiletries and clothing.

Participants took the collected items into their communities to distribute them to individuals in need, according to Sherman.

In addition to assisting those in need, the student government is also promoting inclusivity between City College’s main campus and its outreach campuses through free dodgeball tournaments Friday, April 8, and Friday, April 15, in the South Gym, Sherman said.

According to Sherman, the event would send a positive message to all City College students.

Elections for student government positions for the 2016-2017 academic year will be held April 12-13. Candidates are currently in the process of seeking signatures in support of their campaigns, which are due March 15, said Sherman. ♦
