Check Out RADICAL RUSH WEEK Events Jan. 11th-Jan. 18th

EDUCATE, AGITATE, ORGANIZE! Radical Rush Week features heaps of events with live music, spoken word, speakers, and conversations on issues from food justice, anti-consumerism and global health to feminist ideology, political participation and institutional racism. We're gearing up for the Regents meeting at UC Riverside on Thurs. 1/19, building community and sharing resources! View the whole schedule of events in the calendar below.
It's a great opportunity for folks from all levels of knowledge about progressive activism to find something to get involved with on campus. We're tabling every day of RRW by the Silent Tree so you can come by, meet us and get more information.
Also check out "The Protester" photogallery at the Old Student Center courtyard all week, highlighting events of 2011 from the Arab Spring and International People's Movements to Occupy Wall St. and UC campus actions.
