“In the first few weeks of school we got word that the Westboro Baptist Church would be holding a specifically transphobic demonstration on campus.

(University of Cincinnati)


“At Northeastern University we hosted a meeting on Capitalism vs. Socialism and talked about why we think capitalism requires all sorts of oppression and worsening inequality.
