An Interview with Anna McConnell
Anna McConnell is a sophomore majoring in Human Biology. Originally from the town of Boothbay in Maine, she has long been an advocate for global public health and socioeconomic equality. After graduating high school, she spent a year doing volunteer work in both Uganda and India. Here on campus, she writes for the Stanford Journal of Public Health and is recognized as one of the leading organizers of the Occupy Stanford movement. Like on many other campuses, Occupy Stanford emerged last fall as a group hoping to mirror and amplify the sentiments of Occupy protests happening around the world. For the past few months, she has also been involved with the nascent Occupy Education movement. Its goal is to bring attention to the problems within California’s public education system, specifically: rising tuition costs, skyrocketing student debt, and increasing privatization. Last week, Occupy Education California held a ninety-nine-mile march from Oakland to Davis and then on to the state capitol building in Sacramento. She talks to us about her work with these organizations, her experiences with the marchers, and her views about activism and civil disobedience.
