Thursday Action Zoom Link: Defend Higher Education


Dear FSU Members,

The zoom link for this Thursday’s Teach-in and Legislative Call Out from 3:30 to 4:30 is available from the FSU or Steve Striffler

If you are tired of zoom, you join us at the State Capitol at 3:30 for a socially-distanced rally!

There will be an artistic performance, speakers from local higher ed institutions, and more.  

This event will be educational.   We will hear from students, staff, and faculty from not only UMass Boston, but from Roxbury Community College, MassArt, and Bunker Hill Community College -- all of whom will talk about how their learning and working conditions have been impacted by budget cuts.  We will also learn how funding decisions are made at the state level, and take part in a collective effort to phone our state legislators -- Democrats and Republicans --  in order to send a clear message to policymakers that public higher education must be at least level-funded during this emergency.  

Let students know that you will be attending, and explain why you believe it's important to do so.  If you happen to be teaching a course about politics, budgets, higher education, or other related themes….encourage all your students to come for what will be a hands-on educational dive into the world of state funding and the legislative process.

Steve Striffler
