First Mass Meeting to Discuss the Walkout

On monday night a large group of people gathered in the Rutgers Graduate Student Lounge to discuss the walkout and come up with concrete strategies of moving forward working groups that have been operative for over a week. After viewing a video of last year's walkout, participants brainstormed and then split into groups such as Speakers Bureau, Agit/Prop, and Faculty Outreach to more specifically direct their efforts. Pins and fliers were passed out along with pledge forms for students to sign.

Coalition meetings coming before this meeting had created a basic group structure that allowed for a comprehensive decision making process. Many groups have already become active participants in the work and several more are expected to join.
