Advice for current and future PLSI students:
For students interested in politics, the labor movement or community organizing do not wait to get involved. There is so much incredible organizing happening at SF State and across the Bay Area. Don’t hesitate to dive, meet people and work hard to make an impact. Employers in political and labor spaces like to hire people who have a track record of political/community engagement. There are endless possibilities to make a difference that can also look great on your resume. Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn: /dashiel510
