This is a list of Stanford alums (or attendees) with a history of social justice, antiwar, and/or environmental activism during their student days and/or afterwards. It is intended both to showcase the activism and achievements of Stanford alums, and to serve as a basis for networking between alumni and students. Degrees and class years are provided based on the Stanford Alumni Association database available to all Stanford affiliates, consistent with the practice on sites such as Wikipedia. Other data herein have been verified through publication elsewhere either on the Web or on listservs available for open subscription. We presume, on this basis, that those named here regard the facts listed on this website as public information which they are happy to have shared. Concerns, corrections, additions, or deletion requests should be directed to our webmaster, Joseph Abbott.

This list is a work in progress, and is intended as a starting point for a site where we hope alumni will be able to enter information about their own activism at Stanford and since.
