SPEAR will not be meeting at our usual time this week, but we need EVERYONE to turn out for the following events:
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Ban the Box direct action at the next CPUC meeting: Monday, May 6th, at 4:30! In response to the President’s ongoing refusal to respond the the Ban the Box campaign, we need EVERYONE, and we mean EVERYONE to show up for the Q&A session, walkout, and Teach-in with formerly incarcerated speakers!!! It is incredibly important that we turn out for this teach-in to unequivocally demonstrate to the University that we are not going away, and that we will not be silent about the University’s complicity in the carceral state.
The Voting Rights committee is holding an informal phone banking event in collaboration with Princeton's brand new Coffee Club, to advocate for a piece of legislation in the New Jersey Congress that would effectively grant those formerly and currently incarcerated with the right to vote. On Monday, May 6, between the hours of 1pm and 5pm, come to Campus Club to call key members of the New Jersey House and the Senate in advocacy for the expansion of the right to vote, along with free gourmet coffee and pastries courtesy of the Coffee Club!
We will be having our end-of-the semester Thai Village celebration dinner on Thursday, May 9 at 7pm! This dinner is something that many of us look back on as the one of the best moments of each semester and what truly solidifies our community. All food costs will be covered by SPEAR. Please RSVP here if you can make it!
