On Wed, April 8, the UW Board of Regents will enjoy an extravagant meal on campus ‑ but students and workers are crashing their party.
A new coalition of students and workers called Reclaim UW will attend the Regents dinner to demand an end to rampant inequality on campus. Tuition has increased over 230% since 2000. The campus has witnessed drastic budget cuts and the rise of poverty wage jobs, while over 1,700 UW employees are being paid over $150,000 a year.
Message us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in joining the growing list of campus organizations that are part of Reclaim UW.
