|FAP's Parent Organization: Students United for a
Progressive Change (SUPC):
FAP's predecessor is Students United for Progressive Change (SUPC), founded by Zaahira
Wyne, who is currently a senior at the University of Virginia. Although the two
organizations are different in some respects, they retain crucial similarities, chief
among them the desire to nurture discussion among and between students of our generation
on the proper exercise of American power. Zaahira has been generous with her insights and
guidance, which, in considerable measure, have nurtured FAP's vision. She was kind enough
to supply us with this blurb about her organization:
"I established Students United for Progressive Change (SUPC) at the University of
Virginia in the Fall of 2003 to provide an alternative space for students, faculty, and
community members to discuss and influence American foreign policy. SUPC is unique on
campus insofar as it promotes progressive values -- such as fairness, justice, and
sustainability -- while recognizing the complexity of foreign policy issues and
advocating critical political discourse over polemical debate. The organization's members
have accomplished these objectives through a variety of mediums -- among them,
student-faculty discussions, guest speaker lectures, awareness-raising campaigns, voter
registration, and direct action."
