Ever think that students do not have the

we will address the topic of student activism
through the people who have fought for what
they wanted on campuses and won. Nashida
was involved in the San Francisco State Uni-

in the first ethnic studies department. He
sought to mobilize the communities rather
than simply concentrating their efforts on
students - a strategy much different from
today's. The activists served as agents
of change seeking to serve the people.

"How would I manage if I had to go
out there and take any job I could find?"
This is the question that led social critic
Barbara Ehrenreich to enter the world
lived every day by millions of Americans:
that of entry-level, unskilled employment.
Leaving home and seeking the cheapest
lodgings and the highest paid jobs offered,
Ehrenreich traveled across the country waiting
tables, cleaning hotel rooms, working as a
nurses' aide and as a sales derk. In her lecture,
she will chronicle her experience in which
she attempted to make ends meet on mini-
mum wages and discovered she could not.
Her message is timely and compelling in light
of welfare reform, a faltering economy and
the persistence of the economic and social
injustices faced by many workers in our society.
