Please join us for an evening of delicious food and inspiring music in a benefit dinner for the UCSC Highway 6.
We will be joining friends and fellow activists this Saturday in support of the Highway 6 and community activism in Santa Cruz. Below is the invitation from the organizers. We share this here with you because we see struggle against political repression as inter-connected, we see the valuing of private property and business as usual over real concerns of real people as incredibly problematic.
The public denouncing of the Highway 17 blockade served to silence the important questions the brave action attempted to raise. Where is power at UCSC and in Santa Cruz? Who suffers in the current conditions? How can we support those in need, those struggling and challenge those in power towards greater compassion, empathy and humanistic action? Let this Saturday’s gathering be a step closer as we work to ask important questions and answer those we are confronted with.
Thank you all for your continued support and your inspiring bravery.
Yours with dedication and compassion,
Friends of the SC11
Members of the UCSC Highway 6 and the Santa Cruz community are organizing to raise funds to further the fight against UC political repression of student activism, at a time when students all over the country are rising against police brutality and inequality in education. We would love to have you be a part of this important movement-building event!
This event is also an opportunity for you to connect with other community activists, to learn more about recent student activism at UCSC and why things have escalated to the point that they have. There will be a catered dinner, a silent auction, and several inspiring performances.
Co-sponsored by UCSC Highway 6 and the Resource Center for Nonviolence.
