From Crisis to Change: How to Organize for Action

May 10, 2-4 pm
Seuss Room, Geisel Library

According to Maya Angelou, “the more you know of your history, the more liberated you are.” Knowledge of that history along with direct action organizing can oftentimes create significant change by making students aware of their own power in order to alter the existing power relations. In this two-part training, attendees will learn about the history of UC San Diego as it relates to current campus climate, social change, and activism through the Tell Us How UC It: A Living Archive project. It will be followed by concrete skills-building to learn the basic principles of direct action organizing. Students will learn the strategies, tools, and organizing math behind direct action that leads to victories for our communities. Sponsored by the UC San Diego Library and the University of California Student Association.

Exhibit content and video of the panel can be found online: https://libraries.ucsd.edu/tellushowucit/. Information about the Organize for Action training by UCSA is here: https://ucsa.org/resources/trainings/
