The students, Kaitlin Kimmel (Event Chair), Alex Locust (RCSA President), Christophe Zepeda, Francesca Zuleta, James Valle and Judith Lung put on an incredible event at SF State that was impactful and provocative, reaching over 100 people in the audience including the First Lady of SF State. We thank our students for making the world a better place for people with disabilities and all the other many marginalized and oppressed communities. We are grateful for the work they do, and energized by their commitment to change. Thank you for rising up and righting a wrong.”
