SJU Grad Tax Walkout

Start: Wednesday, November 29, 2017 1:00 PM

End: Wednesday, November 29, 2017 2:00 PM

Dear fellow students/colleagues/members of the community,

The proposed tax plan includes a $1.5 trillion corporate tax cut and a giant tax hike on graduate students. The bill would double or even triple many students’ taxes, making graduate school an unaffordable proposition for many.

There will be a nationwide rally/walkout on Wednesday, Nov 29 at 1pm EST to support higher education and show how vital graduate students are to society. Graduate students are the bedrock of innovation and research in this country. We are vital for the structure and function of higher education in the United States. Without us, universities wouldn't have enough instructors for their college courses.

Join the nation in protesting the grad student tax here at Saint Joseph's University!

When: Wednesday, Nov 29 at 1pm EST

Where: Area in front of the Francis A. Drexel Library

Spread the word!

Yours in solidarity,

Kendra O'Donnell

M.S. Psychology Candidate
