Students Release Open Letter Calling for End of Government Shutdown
Phoenix—-Student representatives from the Arizona Students’ Association, National Association of Graduate and Professional Students, and United States Students Association have released an open letter strongly opposing the federal government shutdown. “The government shutdown harms American students, the American dream, and American competitiveness around the world,” states Anthony Hessel, NAU graduate student and ASA Legislative Chair.
Work impacted by the federal government shutdown includes federal investigations into university systems that have failed to protect students on campus and properly investigate sexual assault crimes, thousands of projects that address health, science, and defense-related research, Head Start childcare services, and veterans’ education support services. In addition, 11,000 researchers are barred access to the National Archives and work with the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Geological Survey, and United States Parks has stopped.
