This summer, we are working with Tashi Jones, a dynamic freshman at San Francisco State University originally from Stockton. Tashi is a photojournalism major and comes equipped with a lifetime of engaging in the struggle for Black liberation. Please contribute below to fund Tashi along with the next generation of emerging young Black leaders, freedom fighters and servants of the people in Black media.”
