"Living the Indebted Life: You are Not A Loan" Conference
Start Date: 4/21/2017Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 4/21/2017End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description:
Students, educators, artists, activists, and community members from across California are invited to a two conference of talks, workshops, and organizing activities centered on opening critical dialogue on how debt shapes everyday student life and drastically influences future life options for graduates. During these free and public events we will explore the realities of student debt, think together about the meaning and consequences of living an indebted life, and identify potential pathways for change.

This second day of the conference features a series of workshops by students and social justice groups that address the question: “What is to be done about our current student debt crisis?” These workshops include: Angad Bhalla on "Making College Free...Again;" Art Activists: The Illuminator on "Hacking the Urban Environment;" Cosecha on "Building an Immigration Movement, Resisting Debt;" and The Debt Collective on "How To Build Power. Resistance and the Fight For Public Provision."
