TWLF 50th Anniversary Rally

Location is ADA accessible

On January 22, 1969, the Third World Liberation Front initiated their now-historic student strike, demanding a Third World College at UC Berkeley. The TWLF was a multiracial coalition comprised of: the Afro-American Students Union (AASU), Asian American Political Alliance (AAPA), Mexican-American Students Confederation (MASC) and the Native American Students Union (NASU). On January 22, 2019, there will be an informational rally to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of this important moment in campus history. TWLF veterans will read the original 1969 demands that led to Ethnic Studies programs being created throughout the UC system and nationwide. Additionally, there will be speakers from subsequent generations who have fought to sustain Ethnic Studies on campus and in the community.
