This week we feature Montana Weekes, who is CCUIH’s Social Marketing Intern. Montana coordinates CCUIH’s presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and has been integral in launching the Red Women Rising campaign to bring more awareness to domestic violence issues faced by Urban Indian women. In the next few months, Montana will work to enhance our social media audience and engagement, in an effort to bring more visibility to Urban Indian health issues.
Learn more about Montana, in his own words:
I am a recent graduate from the University of San Francisco (USF) where I earned my Bachelor’s degree majoring in Politics with a strong emphasis African-American social and political issues. While studying at USF, I was able to work with multiple vulnerable and underserved minority communities throughout San Francisco, providing services that range from education and advocacy to policy research. Ultimately, I would like to practice law and find the best way to apply my education to further benefit various communities in need, perhaps by practicing in a non-profit. I hope my work as CCUIH’s Social Marketing Intern will give me a deeper understanding of the complexities of non-profit advocacy work.
