We need to fill the court room with supporters to let the judge know that the community stands with us. That our action was FOR the community, NOT against it. We need to hold the cops, the judge, the university, and the state accountable. This means the community needs to physically show up and be seen. So please come, stand with us against the powers that be.

My granddaughter just graduated college. Her focus is social justice. We talk a lot about immigration, privilege, 'othering' and how best to make change. I'm very proud of her. And I'm proud of these six, her contemporaries, and their awareness that in this era of everyone and everything demanding attention, one has to be pretty loud to be heard. Well, they were loud and they were heard. When cooperative speech failed , they employed traditional democratic processes to make their statement, and then respected law enforcement's authority

Educating our youth is crucial to our future – these six are shining a light on the failure of institutional responsiveness, on how high fees create structural exclusion and perpetuate inequality I disagree with the University's decision to suspend until next year; it disturbs me to see the discretion of the D A's office and the Court used to charge and punish.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
