"Support Bill Ayers"
In October 2008, several thousand college professors, students and academic staff signed a statement Support Bill Ayers in solidarity with former Weather Underground Organization terrorist Bill Ayers.
In the run up to the U.S. presidential elections, Ayers had come under considerable media scrutiny, sparked by his relationship to presidential candidate Barack Obama.
- We write to support our colleague Professor William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who is currently under determined and sustained political attack...
- We, the undersigned, stand on the side of education as an enterprise devoted to human inquiry, enlightenment, and liberation. We oppose the demonization of Professor William Ayers.

A proud day for Young Socialist activists as LRSD School Board candidate Jim Ross wins the election! From Dr. Ross himself:
"You understand we didn't win the election without you guys, right? When adults were slow to come to come to our aid, students from LRCHYS came, helped organize, and ultimately won it." — they included Miles Barrett Slarks, Rohan M. Manjanatha, Malik Marshall, Jim Ross, David Gilson, Zaheer Siddiqui and Grace Lytle.
