Hey folks!

May Day is fast approaching and a bunch of student groups are in the process of organizing a citywide student convergence!  Plans are in the works for some campus-specific actions & events in the lead-up to May Day, a Free University hosted by Free Cooper Union on May Day, followed by a citywide convergence afterwards!
The first convergence planning meeting was last Sunday at Cooper Union.  There was a great vibe and a ton of enthusiasm about showing solidarity with labor by using May Day as an opportunity to strengthen and build the student movement in NYC.  
There’s still a lot of work to get done!  If you’d like to get involved, email me offlist and I’ll add you to the May Day student convergence listserv (nycstudentconvergence@googlegroups.com), which we hope to use beyond May Day for future citywide student events and coordination.
At the last meeting, the group decided to leave the final decisions about the structure of the day to next week’s meeting in order to go back to their respective campuses and to give more time for folks that couldn’t make the first meeting to give input.  The next planning meeting for the May Day Student Convergence will be at:
April 21st, Sunday, 1pm-3pm 
Washington Square Park
Please RSVP to the event page and share with friends: https://www.facebook.com/events/417425228353105/
If you or your group wants to be involved in the planning of the convergence, contact me off-list and we’ll coordinate.
Best,
Matt
