On Saturday, September 8, 2012, the annual STF Leadership Workshop was held at UCLA. STF chapter leaders were shocked and motivated to take action by keynote speaker Brooks Allen’s, ACLU’s Director of Education Advocacy, presentation on “Making Rights Real: How to Protect Your Right to Educational Opportunity.” In the coming weeks, STF leaders will brief their chapters about the deepening crisis in public education in California and begin organizing our campaign to protect the right to education here at home.

Longtime friend Gabriel Stauring also spoke at the workshop and gave an update on the launch of our mobile human rights libraries in Darfuri refugee camps in Chad.
The workshop was generously co-sponsored by the UCLA International Institute and the Visiting Fulbright Scholars Program.
