grad speaks before a gathering of people on the beach, 2017

Angered by the tax bill’s threats to higher education and frustrated by the university’s inadequate responses, graduate students at Johns Hopkins had to act. In addition to endorsing and circulating the Graduate Representative Organization’s (GRO) petition against the tax bill, TRU organized a speak-out for December 7. More than 75 people turned out to listen as members of TRU, as well as a member of the undergraduate organization Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), condemned the bill’s potential effects on graduate students’ ability to continue working in the university and its ramifications for higher education as a whole. Read our campaign page in the link below for full details. The JHU News Letter covered the event and interviewed some members of TRU.
