Postcards for Change: Hunger & Healthcare

Date: 
Wed, May 31, 2017 - 6:00pm to 10:00pm

City:

Come learn more about the importance of health care in creating a Hunger secure community. All supplies will be provided for postcard writing to local & national leaders.

We want to let our policy makers know that we will not accept any health care policy which makes it impossible for our most vulnerable to access the health care they need.

You may also use this time to write a note regarding any policy you may like to address.

May Day Solidarity for a Fair Contract

EMU proposes a 25% pay cut for new lecturers & a pay freeze for current lecturers.
The proposal also eliminates promotions and job security, and would:
• Make it harder for EMU to recruit qualified, quality teachers
• Place EMU among the lowest paying universities in Michigan
• Place EMU lecturers among the lowest paid higher ed instructional staff in Michigan
• Degrade the quality of education provided to our students
