Thankful Thursdays from BtB UF

h(1).pngBoot the Braids UF brings you “Thankful Thursdays”. This Thursday, November 16, 2017, we would like to thank the Coalition of Immokalee Workers for all the hard work they accomplish towards farm worker justice. They have constantly assisted Chispas’ Boot the Braids campaign on boycotting Wendy’s here at the University of Florida. We look forward to seeing you back on campus in the Spring for our annual march!

Take a look at their Facebook page or their website for more information on their current campaigns:

Stay tuned for next Thankful Thursday!


Gators Dream Forward

Gators Dream Forward is one of Chispas campaigns which seeks to increase awareness of the resources UF offers to undocumented students. Since UF administration has been slow to advertise these resources, a lot of undocumented students may be falling through the cracks. (One such resource is the 2014 Florida Out of State waiver signed into law as HB851.)  HLA and CHISPAS want to change this by making these resources and information available to students through various methods that we hope to expand during this semester and for the upcoming year!
