Progressives Unite on Stanford Campus for Counter-Inauguration

STANFORD, CA – In a sweeping collaboration, progressive student groups of Stanford University are coming together for a common purpose. They will hold a Stand Up for Change rally January 20 from noon to 1pm in White Plaza on Stanford’s campus. It will be a chance for progressives to commit to positive action in the next four years, as George Bush is inaugurated in Washington, D.C. Groups involved include the Stanford Labor Action Coalition, the Greens at Stanford, and one of the nation’s largest active College Democrats, the Stanford Dems. Speakers include Larry Everest, author of “Oil, Power and Empire: Iraq and the U.S. Global Agenda.”





Students are organizing the event to re-energize both the campus and local progressive community. Representatives from the various groups will speak during the rally about the many ways to be proactively involved in fighting for their respective issues. Marie Jones, President of the Stanford Dems and one of the event organizers, reiterates this positive emphasis. “It’s essential to keep students involved in the post-election environment and to keep hope alive.”





Students hope this event will appeal not only to the Stanford community, but also to locals hoping to take action in the next four years. At the rally, there will be more information about other progressive activities on campus throughout the day.
