The Defender newsletter is a monthly publication of the Laney Black Students Union. Entirely produced by students, the purpose of the Defender is to keep Laney's African American student population aware of what is taking place on campus and in the community.
Over 1000 copies of The Defender are distributed, not only at Laney, but at College of Alameda, Berkeley City College, and Merritt College. Additional copies will soon be found through local Black businesses and organizations.
The Defender is an opportunity to educate a community constantly bombarded by madness in the mass media. It also gives students an opportunity to be included, in a positive light, and have their issues, concerns, and needs represented and addressed. We always welcome letters to the editor, guest columns, articles, stories, and poetry.
