The National Mobilization for Equity is a new coalition focusing on organizing May Day and other activities to support the majority of college teachers who are currently “contingent.” Educational quality cannot be sustained on the backs of more than a million underpaid teachers without any job security, academic freedom, basic benefits and other essential forms of support.
Join the Mobilization for Equity to help organize May Day and other activities in support of the Mayday $5K Campaign or simply to highlight the staffing crisis in higher education and the need for change.
Be a part of building a broad-based movement to activate the nation’s contingent faculty at the grass-roots level. Increased public awareness will also help efforts by unions and other organizations working with state or federal entities to advance contractual and legislative remedies.
In addition to contingents, we need to reach out to tenure-track faculty, retirees, students and their parents, allied organizations, community groups and the general public. Organizing May Day and other events around the country can help develop a national grass-roots movement to better support the majority of college teachers and thereby improve the quality of education for our students.
