A former student of mine recently emailed me as part of her research process gathering information for a planned P.S.U. student walk-out planned for Wednesday, 11/16, at noontime in solidarity with the Occupy Portland movement. Is the lack of affordable, equitable access to higher education on your radar? How do you feel about walk-outs as forms of protest?

And think about the ways that you take action to support the education issues that are important to you…what could you do more of? What are the specific issues you can take on? And do you need additional resources or ideas about how to make action possible?
