Fundraising Week at the Star and Crescent
In the wake of the election, we at the S&C want to extend an invitation to anyone feeling scared, frustrated, or outright angry. We have always endeavored to try and make the restaurant a safe, comfortable space that promotes dialogue and discussion over some tasty food. But, it is more important now than ever to make a concerted effort to support the marginalized communities most affected by recent events. Therefore, this week, we will be collecting donations for a different charity at every meal (of course, any and all contributions to these fundraisers are optional and left to your discretion). If you cannot make it to one of the week’s fundraisers, but would still like to contribute, we will post links to the sites where you can donate to the organizations directly. We hope you will join us in breaking bread and spreading awareness about a few wonderful causes.
Descriptions of the organizations and their websites are listed at the bottom.

From the enigmatic, golden-haired Angus McLean ’16:
Are looking to get that pesky government off your back? Come on down to WesACLU’s first meeting of the semester and join the fight for freedom. We have a whole bunch of issues to discuss from immigration to political prisoners to whatever you want to bring to the table. We’re planning on bringing in a speaker, making petitions, and if that isn’t enough to stir your blood there might even a demonstration in the works!
We’re still a relatively new group on campus so new members are very welcome!
