march, “Compelling Interest: Diversity at A&M,” to be held on Wednesday,
February 18th, 2:00-5:00
p.m. at the Rudder Fountain Plaza.
At the rally, we will have tables staffed with FCIC
members and individuals from other organizations to speak with passersby about diversity,
myths about diversity, and publicize our positions on diversity issues.
3:00 p.m., we will invite all campus and community members who support diversity at Texas A&M to join
us in the Aggie March for Diversity. After a brief statement, the march will step off at 3:15, wind
its way through campus, and end up back at Rudder Fountain. The rally has already been mentioned in The
