on the campaign at the UC system
It feels good in California!
October 25, 2005
doesn't know what's about to hit 'em. Workers, students
and organizers of 8 UC schools converged in LA to strategize
a state-wide campus living wage campaign, hosted by
the UCLA Student-Worker Front. Shalini, Max from USAS,
Pedro and Ginny facilitated campaign strategy, direct
action and living wage 101 workshops (that so many workers
and students there could have done on their own already!)
We also strategized how to best run the USAS Sweat-Free
campaign and living wage campaigns simultaneously.
UC folks are the most organized region we've been lucky
to encounter, and everyone should keep an eye on the
new campaign and be ready to help when they need it!
Thank you for such an amazing conference! Hopefully
more state schools can campaign together and build this
The weekend was intense, productive, and crazy. Hurrah
for boat-like hotels and the squatting South-Side Farmers!!
ps-Thanks to the wonderful folks from Santa Cruz for
giving me a ride up the coast. I owe you an equally
crazy ride up the east coast past my parents' house
