Spring Quarter 2005
April 14, 2003
Hello Everyone!

We recently had our first meeting of the quarter. We will be having weekly meetings this quarter, during which time we will address current business/events as well as discussing and taking action against current injustices. Next week we will focus on how CAFTA (U.S.-Central American Free Trade Agreement) may affect the human rights of Central American and U.S. citiztens. The following are some resources concerning CAFTA:
