  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

USG cabinet, senate members attend Call To Action open forum, discuss action plan

Because Call To Action is an independent student run organization, members felt the people who represent our student body should attend the open forum, which is exactly what they did at Monday night’s meeting.

Kevin Lewis and other members of Call To Action attended an Undergraduate Student Government meeting two weeks ago asking for them to attend.

“They were receptive and asked us a lot questions,” said Lewis, BSU president. “It went really good.”

Cabinet and senate members of USG not only showed their presence at the forum, but voiced their opinions about the Call To Action action plan that was presented.

Call To Action explained specific demands that Ashlee Norman, BSU vice president, read aloud during the meeting were not up for negotiating.

“If these demands are not met, action will be met,” Norman said.

The demands included: space for more multicultural organizations, raising the capacity for multicultral offices, student organization budgets not being cut, wider education opportunities and an action plan that will be met when an racism incident occurs.

Each demand was described with thorough details, explaining what the group expects to see by fall of 2014 and will be given to the appropriate office to review Friday Nov. 2. They are requesting to hear back by Dec. 2.

Adriana Darris, member of Call To Action, said the campaign Not In Our Town is planning to collaborate with Call To Action. Specifics are yet to come.

“Jill Carr is also working reading the Call To Action pact,” Darris said. “We want everyone to be informed about this.”

While the group will have a month until they hear back from the University about the plan, they hope it will be affective enough for change in the near future.

“This is what students want,” Lewis said.
