    In the western deserts of Algeria live about 90,000 refugees from the disputed area known as Western Sahara. These refugees are the Sahrawi people, the people of the farthest western reaches of the Sahara desert. The region they have fled has been mired in conflict since the 1970’s, and despite a UN mandated peacekeeping force, shows no signs of escaping the long and protracted fight.

    “You had me at hello.”

    Or something like that. That’s how I was introduced to STAND, some 6, going on 7 years ago. I was a new student wandering around a chaotic club fair, when someone with a hastily made STAND sign started talking to me. I had never heard of Darfur, and I sure as heck hadn’t heard of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 

    The rest, as they say, is history.

    It’s that time of year again: graduation time! It’s the time when we at STAND have to say good-bye to some of our strongest and most influential student leaders. This year, six of STAND’s Managing Committee members are graduating, and our Student Director is also leaving her post.
