On April 16th, Seattle Central college faculty, staff, and students all took part in the ROC Walk Out. North and South Seattle Colleges also participated. ROC stands for ReInvest in Our Colleges, and it was sponsored by the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). At the Seattle Central campus, our very own Ruth Contreras (reporter) and Bryant Ouch (videographer), were on the scene to document the event, interviewing the participants and speakers, including the college President Sheila Edwards Lange and Councilwoman Kshama Sawant. Check out the video below, and look for our full coverage article in our next print edition, coming soon!
