Seventy percent of instructional faculty are off the tenure track, yet most lack an equal voice in the university system. That's why adjuncts and contingent faculty across the greater Los Angeles area are uniting to form a union with Adjunct Action/SEIU to advocate for better working conditions for a better education system. With a campaigns also underway in Boston, Washington, DC, and Seattle, adjunct organizing is becoming a national movement.
We're starting things off with a symposium at the Japanese American Museum in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 2nd. We hope you can join!
There is free parking available to those who have RSVPed. The parking lot is Los Angeles Public Parking Lot 7, 140 Judge John Aiso St, 90012 (between Temple and First St). Please use the name you RSVPed with to receive your free parking.
Featured speakers include Lilian Taiz, PhD, president of the California Faculty Association and Gary Rhoades, PhD, director of the Center for the Study of Higher Education, Educational Policy Studies & Practice at University of Arizona in Tucson. Lunch will be served and parking will be provided. We'll provide more updates on panels and additional speakers as the symposium nears. The venue will be open starting at 10 a.m., and a light breakfast will be served before the start of the symposium. The day's program will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sign up on the right to RSVP, and be sure to inform fellow contingent faculty about the event. →
