Challenging Borders: Emerson Alternative Spring Break 2015
Students in Emerson College's Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program are raising $6,000 to cover transportation, housing, and food costs for this year's service learning trip to El Paso, TX to discover first-hand the impact of immigration laws in the US on our communities and those seeking to gain entry into the country. The El Paso ASB program offers students the opportunity to better understand the issue of immigration in US border communities and learn about the issues of economic development, food justice, and human rights at the US/Mexico border. Through this Border Immersion Experience, students will develop the knowledge and consciousness to make a positive impact in the Greater Boston community upon their return.

Opinion Polling: Letting Voices Be Heard
Public opinion research is an integral part of the democratic process, providing a snapshot of the current political and social climate and empowering citizens to make their voices heard. As the only undergraduate, student-run polling group in the country, the Emerson College Polling Society (ECPS) conducts local, state and national polls on high-profile elections and hot-button issues. Your support will help ECPS expand its scope: covering more races, and providing students with hands-on experience in our democratic process.
