Your Call: Student movements making waves
On the January 7th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss student movements sweeping the nation. Last year protests erupted on college campuses across the country tackling racial discrimination, sexual assault, and student debt among other issues. In December, the University of California sold about $25 million of its prison stock shares after students’ calls for divestment.
What waves are student movements making today? Are we in a new era of student activism? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
