Thanks Rebecca and the Racial Awareness Program for the shoutout!

Thank you to whoever nominated me (even though you misspelled Paraskevopoulos.)

You're probably asking yourself, "Self, why the heck should I vote for her?" Good question. I'll list some of the things I'm working on, and then let you decide for yourself.

projects i'm working on right now:

- planning for national CANference
- book drive for Dheishe Refugee Camp in Bethlehem
- non-political get-together between Zionist and Palestinian-solidarity students, so that when we get together to talk politics, we can see each other as people and not ideologues.


-peer facilitating the racial awareness program
-writing a zine to sell as a fundraiser for the interfaith peace-builders
-bringing evan greer to campus to teach us how to work with various student groups

as with all things, there are a bunch of people working on all of this, too. it is in no way just me doing this stuff, but it is nice to be recognized.
