Kudos to everyone on the hearing today -- you should be proud of yourselves as a caucus, as advocates for students in Michigan, and as individuals. Despite the unprecedented challenges of this semester, the platform was powerful, well-articulated, well-prepared, and beautifully presented. That's a testament not just to the presenters and TCs but to every person in the caucus -- your work as a group made the platform what it is.

A recording of the hearing is available here.
