College of L&S, Integrative Biology and Political Economy (Riya, Era)
Riya and Era's discovery project is a documentary on the coronavirus in Berkeley to highlight the impact on different communities. As Chiefs of Staff for their respective offices in the ASUC (EAVP and SAO), they used their connections during this time to identify the disproportionate impacts of the pandemic on students and Berkeley residents. Thus far, they have recorded over a dozen hours of footage and interviewed over two dozen students, city officials, and campus leaders such as ASUC President Vera and EAVP Imai, to consolidate a tangible, informative resource on what steps Berkeley has taken so far and what the future holds for the community.
