Students to focus on “No Harm, Disarm” during week of action

Students for Quality Education (SQE) chapters throughout the state will be holding actions April 15-19 to bolster awareness of their “No Harm, Disarm” campaign and in recognition of the two-year anniversary of a Humboldt State student’s murder near campus.

SQE is a student program of CFA.

The week of action coincides with the April 15 anniversary of the death of David Josiah Lawson, who was killed at a party near campus in 2017. His murder remains unsolved, despite efforts by a coalition of family, faculty, students and community members to seek justice in his case. Read more about those efforts here.

Next week, students will hold vigils, workshops, town hall meetings, teach-ins, and community discussions. The goal is to broaden understanding of SQE’s demand that the CSU administration disarm police, invest in mental health counselors and intervention teams, create Black resource centers and provide unconscious bias training for campus police and security.
