Bard Immigration Coalition 
Formally known as Organizing for Undocumented Students’ Rights (OUSR), Bard Immigrant Coalition continues the original mission of OUSR to promote the rights of undocumented students on Bard’s campus, in the Hudson Valley, and to follow the national movements on immigrants rights. However, we now seek to expand our efforts in fundraising and raising awareness of the broader issue of immigration in the United States.
The Draft:
a student human rights journal at Bard
“As a student-collective we are both a print and online publication and a community of activists, organizers, aspiring journalists, and artists.”
The Draft is a student publication interested in disseminating inter-disciplinary approaches to questions of human rights. Our goal is to provide a space where student work pertaining to both international and local issues of social, political, economic and cultural inequality can be shared with a larger audience. We are a student organization with a unique horizontal structure and we seek to incorporate collaborations of all kinds on campus. We hope to provide a space where radical politics on campus can flourish and where student work can leave the classroom and enter a space of peer engagement and conversation.
Contact Austin Dilley, Editor of the Draft ([email protected])  for more information or to submit to the journal.
