Students for Leftist Action

Benjamin Pauli

Students for Leftist Action is the largest political student group at Lawrence. The organization is devoted to issues concerning social justice, progressive economics and democracy, non-violence, the protection of civil liberties, and freedom and equality for all, with interests including everything from international law to local farming practices. SLA organizes a number of activities on campus to engage the greater Lawrence community and regularly sends representatives to conferences as well as Washington. SLA meets casually once a week to discuss group and personal projects, both of which are encouraged. SLA also manages a semi-autonomous newspaper, the One Minute Left, which is the only progressive newspaper at Lawrence and accepts any articles, art or poetry left of center for print regardless of association with SLA.
