MAY 2016—Tension is building at San Francisco State University, where four students are holding an indefinite hunger strike and helping spotlight attacks by university administration on the university’s College of Ethnic Studies.


From labor allies to community supporters, all helped and deserve thanks

From our massive march and rally at the CSU Chancellor’s Office in Long Beach on November 17, 2015 to the preparations leading up to the 23-campus strike, CFA had an outpouring of support and help from labor allies and community supporters.

To all of those who supported our efforts, walked beside us, volunteered their time, lent their influence and expertise, and participated in our events, thank you. We couldn’t have done it without you and your generosity.
