[liberationtech] [activists] Stanford as a Sanctuary Campus?

Stanford has issued a vague statement about their support for DACA and
immigrant students, but hasn't declared itself a sanctuary campus or
responded to Stanford Sanctuary Now's demands
<https://www.stanfordsanctuarynow.org/>. You can get involved at an open
meeting Tuesday (tomorrow) 7pm!

[please forward widely]

With the recent executive orders and the last dozen years of xenophobia and
deportations, it is vital that we stand up to create a pro-immigrant,
pro-Muslim, anti-racist university. Friday, the 20th of January, several
hundred students
<http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/01/20/palo-alto-residents-protest-trump-inauguration-here-and-afar/>
presented a list of demands, crafted by Stanford Sanctuary Now, outside the
Office of the President. This resulted in an upcoming meeting with Stanford
administration, and we want your help.

Stanford Sanctuary Now will have an open meeting Tuesday, January 31st from
7-8:30 in the Havana Room of the Graduate Community Center (750 Escondido
Rd). We will describe our progress, outline our proposals, and break out
into small groups to brainstorm actions for Stanford to support those at
risk. All are welcome. If you are new to our organization, this is a good
opportunity to get involved. RSVP for the Facebook event
<https://www.facebook.com/events/606084249584003/> and share with others.

We know it is a difficult time and, for many of us, it has been a difficult
time for far too long. Join us as we continue to work for a better Stanford.

All the Best,
Stanford Sanctuary Now
