Today, right now, there is a sit-in at the Swanlund Administration building to get rid of "Chief Illiniwek" our racist mascot. The sit-in is being conducted by a multicultural group of students, faculty, and Native Americans, requesting the removal of the mascot. There is a rally outside of Swanlund to support those sitting in and they may also need money for food for the "occupation" or potentially bail money. However, since Nancy Cantor is still the Chancellor, hopefully bail won't be an issue. They are also requesting we call Trustee Eppley at (312) 372-1121 to state we support the sit-in.

See you at the rally, which was to be at noon at the alma mater, but is now moved to Swanlund.
