Students for Economic Justice 2017 Fellowship
Christopher Kennison is a second-year student at City College and he hopes to be transferring to a university next spring or the following fall. Christopher is a business major and wants to intertwine this with social justice to help the community with jobs and housing. He is from San Diego and represents the communities of Chollas View, Mt. Hope in southeast and Imperial Beach in the south bay. Christopher is 26 with 3 kids and is married. He first got introduced to social activism from Professor Alexander during his first year in the Umoja Program and ever since then has been involved in everything politically and socially. Christopher strives for a better future for people who share his same struggles and for people that don’t have a voice. He is trying to set the example that anything is possible and not to let anything or anybody hold you down.
