Over 300 students will gather from each of the four UM-System schools for this rally focusing on the importance of current legislative issues impacting Missouri’s students.
Who: Students from all four University of Missouri schools.
What: Make a Stand rally and ASUM Legislator of the Year award presentation
Where: Missouri State Capitol South Steps
When: 9:30 am – 12:00 pm April 11, 2013.
As legislators consider the state budget and other issues impacting students, the voice of those affected must be heard. In recent years, higher education has bore the brunt of the economic downturn and this burden has been passed along to students. ASUM will host the Make a Stand rally to give students an opportunity to show legislators they are listening and willing to act.
Please contact Corbin Evans for any additional information.
Students and ASUM employees will be available for comment before and after the event. Please reply to this email to set up a private interview time.
