WAM!!! Westwood, ASU, and MCC Native American Student organizations are teaming up to collect New or slightly used winter clothing for the people who are standing up for water quality and heritage. Hundreds of indigenous persons and their allies have gathered near the crossing of the Missouri and Cannon Ball rivers in the ancestral territories of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. Using nonviolent means, their goal is to stop the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) that would connect production fields in North Dakota to refineries in Illinois. Their primary fear is that an oil leak would threaten water quality for many members of the tribal community. Bring your beanies, socks, gloves, jackets, and rain gear to room 303. Thank you Westwood Warriors for your donated items.
If you missed your opportunity to purchase the wrist band last year, now here is your chance. The Lady Warrior softball club is selling blue and orange ""PlayHard"" wrist bands. Help support the team to raise money for Tournament travel and uniform purchase. The team will be selling on campus and at home sporting events. Go Warriors
