Hello everyone! If you’re free tomorrow at TODAY, please try to make it to the Defending Public Higher Education Conference at the GC and the AP STRATEGY SESSION/SOCIAL DIRECTLY AFTER AT 3:30PM:
Friday, October 7: Defending Public Higher Education Conference at the Grad Center, 8:30am-3pm
Many GC/CUNY affiliates are endorsing this conference featuring several speakers, including the AP’s own Antonia Levy leading a discussion with Frances Fox Piven and a range of activists in the audience (see attached flyer). Their particular panel is from 1-3pm (free food 12-1pm!!!) Antonia needs us there to radicalize the convo with FFP and it might also be a good place to begin to think about stuff to discuss at the strategizing session later that day…
Right after the conference ends, the Adjunct Project will host a “Strategy Session Social” for undergrad/grad students, teachers, and community members to put the day’s discussions into action. This will be in GC room 5409, 3:30-5:30pm. We hope that the strategy session will directly take up what’s been going on with #OccupyWallStreet. About 45 people all came down to the labor/community rally from the GC yesterday, so let’s figure out how AP folks and other CUNY students, teachers, and other contingent workers can most effectively get involved in the near future!!!
Tomorrow we’ll also be accepting donations at our strategy session for food, clothes, blankets, toiletries etc. for OWS. Some folks will be going to the labor outreach meeting down there that starts at 6pm afterward, so we can deliver stuff then.
Plus, there will be free drinks and snacks for everyone!!!
I really hope to see you all tomorrow, and over the weekend at OWS!!!
