The Student Coalition for Social Justice invites students, faculty and staff to help them prepare for their trip to Fort Benning, Ga., later this month, when they will call for the closure of the U.S. Army School of the Americas.

From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. today in the main floor atrium of Murray-Herrick Campus Center, SCSJ invites the St. Thomas community to finish making crosses that bear the names of SOA victims and to sign a banner in support of closing the school. Both will be left at the Fort Benning gates.
