This past Tuesday (3/29), the Senate spent about 3 hours deliberating which student organization should receive the 2016 Spring Caf Fast. After hearing 4 well-done presentations by Oles for Justice in Palestine, SARN, Operation Smile, and STOGROW, the Senate decided to award Caf Fast to SARN. SARN will be giving 100% of Caf Fast proceeds to the HOPE Center. The HOPE Center has provided St. Olaf student advocates with over 400 hours of free training over the past 5 years The HOPE Center will use the proceeds of the Caf Fast to support survivors of sexual assault through emergency services (transportation to shelters and local safe homes), legal advocacy-orders, and upkeep of the drop-in center. Please participate in the Caf Fast! It is on SATURDAY BREAKFAST, April 23rd!
