A dedicated group of college community members put together a candlelight vigil on November 23rd, from 5-6:30 pm, in the Fine Arts Courtyard (in front of the campus Theater). The goal was to show our support for one another and our solidarity with those working to combat the forces arrayed against public education in California.
The intention was also to make the sometimes “invisible” employees and students visible to each other and, hopefully, the community at large. This event was a peaceful, supportive get-together to show our care and concern over the budget cuts and subsequent loss of jobs and classes at CSM. The first in a series of activist events leading up to the Sacramento March in March.
