Plans are building -- several Adjunct cohorts from around the state of Michigan will be making their way to Detroit for the Adjuncts United march to Cobo Hall on June 22. Our march will be but one small tributary feeding the larger river of people--educators of all types, artists, students, labor, social/economic justice activists and anyone who cares about ordinary people having a voice in today's global economy--who will converge on Cobo Hall for the opening of the U.S. Social Forum, June 22-26.
All faculty and students--anyone who cares about the future of higher education--are invited to join us in this march. We will gather at Woodward and Warren in Detroit (Wayne State campus) at 3 p.m. for a short rally, then proceed down the march route to Cobo Hall. See http://www.uptf.org/ for event flyers: please pass the word along!
Also of interest for Adjuncts, scheduled during the Forum and sponsored by the UPTF (Wayne State part-time faculty union): a Workshop, "Voice for the Voiceless: Organizing Part-time Faculty in Higher Education." June 23, 1-3 p.m., rm. 340, Wayne County Community College. Day registration with the Social Forum is needed. See http://www.ussf2010.org/ for registration, events program, directions, etc. Again, please pass the word along!
Together we can drop the "invisibility cloak" and speak out on our own behalf!
