End of the Semester!

Hi Activists! As the semester winds down we still have a couple events to celebrate and take study breaks with us! This Tuesday, December 3rd, we won’t have our 7pm meeting in PAR. But our Write for Rights Event is Wednesday, December 4th, 6-8pm! We will have it in the SAC 3.112! There will be pizza and writing letters to help Prisoners of Conscience!

Also as a relaxing celebration of the end, during the Monday dead day, December 9th, we will have brunch at Ana and Hannah’s house! Cooking starts around 11 am and eating at noon! Please join us!

Thank You!!

We are so grateful for everyone’s help with the #GameofDrones tour stop in Austin! We had over 100 signatures on our petition and raised a lot of awareness around the issue of drones. To keep up with the national #GameofDrones tour here is their tumblr (http://www.amnestygameofdrones.tumblr.com/).

As a follow-up event to the #GameofDrones event we are trying to put together a screening of the documentary “Dirty Wars.” Keep checking back for more details!!

Remember our Profit Share at Austin’s Pizza on November 19th!
