As the Budget Cut Crisis continues, it is important to remember that life at the University still goes on, and there are other activists causes and events going on that should get our attention.
First up, DFA is hosting a Student Health Organizing Coalition (SHOC) Training on Wednesday evening (January 28) at 9 PM in Pearlman Lounge. SHOC is a Tufts based coalition that is working to reform Student Health insurance plans in the State of Massachusetts. This is a great opportunity to network with activists from other schools and learn how we can change the health care system in this state. For more information: see Facebook.
Next up, the Social Justice Committee of the Student Union is having its first meeting of the semester on Thursday at 10 PM in the Union office. The Committee can work on any number of social justice projects as it pleases. So come to the meeting armed with ideas and a sense of passion.
Finally, on January 31st, this Saturday night, the Student Union is hosting the Combating Hate Fundraising Dinner from 8 to 10 PM. The event is an all you can eat buffet, with entertainment provided by VoiceMale, Starving Artists, Mochila and the Step Team. Food provided by local restaurants. The price? $10. All of the money raised will be donated to the effort to help rebuild a black church in Springfield, MA burned down the night Barack Obama won the election.
