CFA joins family of murdered CSU student in calling for Attorney General investigation

Last week, CFA joined the family of murdered CSU student David Josiah Lawson in calling on California State Attorney General Xavier Becerra to step into the criminal investigation.

October 15 marks 18 months since Lawson was stabbed to death at a party near the Humboldt State campus where he was a second-year student in Criminology and Justice Studies.

Meantime, to bring wider attention to the murder and to conditions facing faculty, staff and students of color—Lawson was African American—in predominately white Arcata where HSU is located, Students for Quality Education is tabling, rallying, displaying banners, and screening Unsolved Hate, a student-made documentary about Lawson’s death, at CSU campuses around the state.
