Director of Social Sustainability
My name is Erin Brathwaite (she, her, hers) and I am in my third year here at Appalachian. I am heavily involved with multicultural and marginalized groups on campus. I’m working on completing my Bachelors of Science in Sociology and a minor in Dance Studies.I also am an organizer in the south and work passionately with groups like Ignite NC and Charlotte Uprising. My focus is liberation for Queer and Trans People of Color. I hope to find a career in higher education at a Predominately White Institution (like App) so that I can offer insight and solidarity with students of color who attend these colleges and universities. I have served in the Student Government Association since January of 2016 as a sophomore class senator and I wish to continue to have a strong voice on campus affairs even after my time on cabinet.
