KZSC's students are teaming up with Student Media at UCSC to send student reporters to D.C. and create multimedia projects based on these events and more. "Like" Santa Cruz Media Coalition on Facebook for more unbiased media that's to come. And, of course, keep an eye out on KZSC's Facebook page, Instagram, and Twitter for more reports and photographs.
