Friday, September 4th

12:00pm - 2:00pm

Multicultural Community Center - Hearst Annex D-37

 

Women Run the ASUC! is a celebration of the historic victory of all women of color holding leadership positions in the ASUC Office Elect at UC Berkeley. Since it’s establishment in 1887, as an organization to advocate on behalf of UC Berkeley students, the ASUC has never had an Office Elect comprised completely of women let alone women of color. We come together to commemorate this moment and celebrate its potential to promote a campus climate where all students feel valued, supported, and welcome.

 

GenEq in collaboration with the Multicultural Student Development Offices (MSD) and the Multicultural Community Center (MCC) invites you to join us as we come together to welcome our new student government leaders over food, well wishes, and joyous celebration!

 

Admission is free. Register here
