My name is David Robinson Jr. and I’m running for HUSA Senate(College of Arts and Science)
My campaign is named FOCUS because I want to focus on improving safety for students on campus. We can do this by strengthening the relationship between Howard students and the local community. Legislatively, that means drafting policies that allow for visitors to feel welcome on campus but still respectful to Howard’s legacy. In addition, we must draft stronger policies to support victims of sexual violence and harassment, especially members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Statistically, 65.1 percent reported experiencing harassing behavior since first enrolling at the school nationally, according to the Association of American Universities(AAU) campus climate report in 2019. Since we as a nation can’t see this as a problem to address, let’s start the change at Howard.
