Hey Everyone! This is super exciting I am excited like I can’t explain how cool this is join us!!!!

Where’s The Funding:

National SLAP & USSA Day of Action on March 2nd

Goals à

  • To engage students, community, and labor to fight against attacks on students, workers and the public sector.
  • Call for a national day of action on March 2nd against the passage of a Continuing Resolution in the House of Representatives that severely cuts financial aid and higher education funding.

 

Target locations à

SLAP Network:

  • UCF SLAP, UCF SGA & Central Florida JwJ

  • Other member states (MI, PA)
  • Possible non-member states (AZ, NJ, NE)

 

Description of the campaign

Much like we are seeing happen in Wisconsin right now, there is unrest among students, community and labor towards the attacks on the public sector. Attacks on several fronts are threatening access to higher education with the continued privatization of universities through layoffs and contracting work out to non-union workers and increased costs as state universities are now being primarily funded by students through tuition. Student Labor Action Project and USSA can provide common ground for workers and students to unite in the fight against these massive roll backs within the frame of our WTF campaign.

Tactics:

This will be determined by the SLAP committee, USSA Board Campaign Team, and consultation with the State Defense Sub-team of Jobs with Justice, once approved.

 

Timeline:

February 22                 Call to Action circulated to USSA and JwJ lists

March 2                       Call-in Day and Local Day of Action to prevent lay-offs, cuts to public services and cuts to public higher education (or something like this)
