Yo what’s up anteaters? My name is Joshua and I will be one of your co-commissioners for National Organizing for the 2017-2018 school year! National Organizing will work directly with National Student led organizations such as the United States Student Association on campaigns tackling student debt, immigration justice, and many other issues that need to be addressed. We are hoping to support the UC Irvine community by supporting the many different demands made by different student groups on campus to ensure a safer campus for all and by educating students on campus about different issues. We will be focusing on grassroots organizing and placing those who are oppressed at the forefront of all movements to emphasize their demands. Lastly, we want to make sure YOUR voice is heard therefore if there is any support or issue you would like to see uplifted please outreach to us. We are here to serve you and if you would like to join our commission we are awaiting your passion and will to fight for the liberation of all oppressed peoples.
