Lobying against DeVos

YDSA GW January 30, 2017:

Today, members of Young Progressives Demanding Action lobbied against the appointment of Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education.

The Internationalist Students' Front at GW is proud to announce our first major event of the semester, The New Nepal!

We are bringing this event to campus for a couple reasons. Over the past two decades, Nepal has undergone a major political transformation.

We will be joined by high-ranking Nepalese statesmen to discuss developments in the country and their first-hand experiences with the challenges and success they've faced in an ever-changing landscape.

The speakers for the day will be:
