A Latina student at the $48,000 dollar a year Pitzer University is asking people to donate money to her so she can go on Spring Break. She specifically asked for money from white allies in recognition that everything they have and everything they are is because of “genocide and enslavement of our ppl”
Who is paying for her college? She can come up with 48k for tuition but nothing for Spring Break?

“Everything that [white allies] are/have [right now] is due to the genocide and enslavement of our ppl,”
The student said that she and her fellow QPOC (Queer People of Color) are borrowing a car, but want money for gas.
“Calling on white allies especially 4 ur support,” wrote Vargas. “Remember that everything that u are/have [right now] is due to the genocide and enslavement of our ppl…yet all im asking 4 is a bit of cash to get us thru the week. thxx❤”
