Thanks for picking up this copy of the 2009 (dis)orientation guide to UH and the Houston area produced by Students for a Democratic Society at UH. We wanted to create a document with resources and information about some of the work for social justice being done on our campus and in our city and encourage UH students to get involved.
We do not intent for this to be a completely comprehensive guide to either our school or our city, but a jumping off point for folks who want to use our time in school and after wards to fight for social, economic and environmental justice. We hope some of the stuff inside this pamphlet can help you get to know more about our community and inspire you to join (or start) some of the groups doing amazing work in Houston.
