Campus Champion

Growing up hearing her dad say, “Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do something because you’re a girl” inspired Lorraine Berry to take on the world. The NeoVox project director helps to bring world issues into focus at SUNY Cortland. Earlier this year, she brought us teach-ins on the Congo and on gun control. On March 26, she will present a feminist analysis of the TV series “The Walking Dead.” Lorraine champions raising awareness of racial and gender inequalities and is the force behind two such April presentations: the April 2 talk on Rosa Parks and an April 19 student presentation on Henrietta Lacks, at Transformations.
