On February 10, hundreds of students from across NC marched against tuition hikes and budget cuts.
On March 24, we'll be gathering again to chart out the next steps for our movement.
The NC Defend Education Coalition will host a statewide student organizing conference called "The Future is Ours!" -- A fight back and organizing conference, in Greensboro, NC. Students, young people, and community activists from across the state will be getting together to strategize about how we can continue to build the movement for justice, for education, for workers' rights, and against budget cuts and attacks on our communities. There will also be organizing and skills workshops, and opportunities to network with student organizers from across NC.
We need your help to make this important gathering happen! We are trying to raise $1000 to help cover the many costs associated with hosting this conference including:
-providing travel stipends to students traveling from across the state
-printing costs and providing other materials
-to cover any other costs including food, lodging, and any other unexpected expenses
Please consider making a donation today to support student-led organizing in North Carolina for education justice, against budget cuts, and for access to higher education for all!
