    MTV's Campus Invasion Tour

    I received this email from a Kristen Havens, an employee of MTV's Rock the
    Vote project. She is looking for minorities (read: Muslims) to be a part of
    the MTV
    register-to-vote campaign because she thinks that the Muslim voice in politics
    has been either absent and/or ignored. This is a great opportunity for Muslims
    to voice their concerns about how SECRET EVIDENCE is anti-American and
    directly impacts the Muslim community in America. She specifices Harvard
    Students in the below email, but MIT, Wellsely, Tufts, BU, and BC Muslim
    Students are also more than welcome. If you are interested, email her directly
    at <[email protected]>. Please forward this email along to all Boston
    area Muslims.

    To Whom it May Concern,

    I don't know if you're aware, but MTV's year-long anti-discrimination
    campaign, Fight for Your Rights: Take a Stand Against
    Discrimination, is traveling to eastern colleges starting in late
    March. Rock the Vote is partnering with MTV on this event.

    Right now, the tour bus is slated to come to Wentworth Institute of
    Technology this Saturday, March 31, for a one-day visit. Unfortunately,
    Harvard is not being targeted, but it would be terrific if any Harvard
    students were willing to make the trek across the river into Boston to
    help out with the event.

    The idea: to promote awareness of anti-discrimination (i.e. racial
    profiling, hate crimes) legislation. I'm responsible for rounding up 15
    Rock the Vote volunteers at each stop along the bus tour. Volunteers
    will work within the MTV "Village" to register voters, gather petition
    signatures, and get students to fill out surveys. The end goal: to
    promote awareness of anti-discrimination effforts.

    Volunteers would work from about 11 a.m. until the village shuts down
    between 5 and 6 p.m. The MTV Village is a ticketed
    event including live music and a variety of fun activities. Rock the
    Vote volunteers, however, will attend for free.

    At this point, I am still in need of FOURTEEN volunteers for this event.

    Any help you could give me in locating interested students would be
    terrific. This would be a great opportunity for any college
    student to get involved, but in particular, it may be of interest to
    minority students, students of government and policy , and
    students involved in gay, lesbian and bisexual support or activist

    Interested parties can contact me directly at [email protected]
    if they want to volunteer to help gather petition signatures or
    register voters. If responding by email, interested parties should
    please include their names, phone numbers, and email

    I can also be reached at 310/234-0665 ext. 107.
