I thought you knew about this already?!?! Holla back Florida?
SAVE THE DATE! USSA’s 63rd Annual National Student Congress will be held this summer from July 22-26th at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University in Tallahassee, Florida. At the National Student Congress, student delegates from across the country assemble to determine the issues USSA will fight for in the coming year as well as elect the new leadership of the organization. At a time when higher education and student rights are under attack on many different fronts, it is critical that students come together to set forth a bold agenda to fight back together in the coming year.
Check out coverage of last year’s Student Congress. More information and online registration for this year’s Congress will be provided on the USSA website in early June- stay tuned!
In addition to Congress, the summer and early fall are great opportunities to train students to be more effective organizers in the next school year, and USSA’s Grassroots Organizing Weekend (GROW) Training program does just that. GROW teaches students how to be more strategic in their fight for justice on campus and in the community. The training is a series of presentations, exercises, and discussions that teach a set of skills and concepts, which will increase the effectiveness of your student organizing. The GROW trainers are seasoned student organizers from around the country who teach by using their own personal organizing experiences.
If you’re interested in bring a USSA GrassRoots Organizing Weekend (GROW) to your campus this summer or fall, be sure to start planning before school gets out by contacting USSA Training Director Danny Montes at firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep up the amazing work!
Lindsay McCluskey, USSA President
