A3M Reunions

Multi-Generational Activist Reunion

The 55th Reunion of
Stanford’s April 3rd Movement

May 3–May 5, 2024

As with previous gatherings, the Reunion commemorated more than A3M. We brought together people who were active at Stanford and adjacent communities any time during the 1960s and 1970s. We also invited current students, faculty, and staff, as well as family members of our original cohort.
