Learn what's really been happening behind the scenes at Mills College, and what the Northeastern acquisition means for Oakland.
If you have not yet heard the news that the Mills College administration sold this treasured cultural institution out from under its students, staff, faculty and alumnae, it's time to get informed.
This Zoom discussion will feature perspectives from affected community members at Mills, in Oakland, and around the nation, where women's colleges and small liberal arts colleges are under attack by corporate predators, just like public schools.
The presentation will reveal discoveries by Save Mills College, All4Mills, and other bodies, including:
* Why Mills didn't have to close
* The "Shock and Awe" campaign
* How students & faculty have suffered and been silenced
* Possible futures for Mills
* Community consequences
With appearances by affected students, parents, faculty, survivors of other college acquisitions, plus OUSD and Oakland leaders who will comment on the "takeover trend" in education, this event will create space for more discussion around this devastating occurrence than the College ever permitted its community.
This event takes place from May 3rd to May 18th, the anniversary of the 1990 student strike. Notable alumnae from the historic strike class will also make remarks.
Lucky guests will receive raffle prizes.
Watch Party May 3-18
