United StatesThe 2009 United Students Against Sweatshops Winter Conference will be held in sunny Los Angeles at the University of Southern California!

EDUCATE, AGITATE, ORGANIZE!
The USAS conference is a great space for youth and student organizers and allies to meet each other, learn valuable organizing skills in workshops and panels, participate in direct action in solidarity with local workers with hundreds of other student organizers, and strengthen our collective organizing work! The conference will have a sliding-scale registration fee of $35-$95.
USAS offers travel scholarships for the folks in our network. We prioritize early registration (on the website now!), folks who have looked for alternate sources of grassroots funds and folks from traditionally marginalized backgrounds-- especially working class folks, people of color, women, LGBTQ people, and differently abled folks. The travel scholarship form is attached. Please register at the website AND complete and send the attached form to the USAS Development Coordinator Shaun Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you need to apply for funding from your school or other sources and need proof of registration or other supporting documents, please contact one of the USAS National Organizers and one of us can help you with that process: Rod Palmquist at email@example.com ,Shaun Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org , or Salma Mirza at email@example.com .
