The Great Tortilla Conspiracy screen printed edible art onto tortillas at the Halloween Rally to Protect City College at Civic Center in San Francisco on Thursday.
Tortilla art by Brian Lei, a CCSF student. Screenprinted tortillas are heated and served as free quesadillas.
Hundreds rallied in support of City College, which is threatened with losing its accreditation, despite its exemplary record of educational quality. The city attorney has sued both ACCJC accreditation board over its well-documented conflicts of interest and political bias, and the the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges for lack of oversight. However, Mayor Ed Lee has largely remained silent. CCSF brings the city $300 million in annual revenue while serving a student population that is 70% people of color.
