During the YoD, broadcast journalism facilities at Moorpark will give students an amazing opportunity to get hands-on experience. We have a large studio space, a full control room, blue screen capability, editing stations and field camera packages.

In class, we will be focusing on the health of our democracy in the United States and the part we can all play in improving it. I'm also planning some informative activities geared toward the upcoming fall election.

My department will be sponsoring a YoD faculty lecture series webcast. Freedom of expression is fundamental in all my classes. It's something that should be zealously guarded by all the mass media.

We'll be reading Persepolis, the autobiography of a girl growing up during the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran and basing our argument papers on issues such as American foreign policy, American-Middle East relations, and exportation of democracy.

Associated Students president Sara Yakhi will coordinate YoD events for student government.
The timing for YoD is excellent. 2008 is already a watershed year with several more months to go to the presidential election.

I hope they (the Student Voice) dedicate at least one story per issue to democracy and government and helping students discover how it works for them.

The press is one of the most important industries in any Democracy, because the journalist's main focus is to keep government in check.
