Actions and Events for May 10:

This is a crucial couple of days for the future of City College. As Merilee Hearn of HEAT said, “We have only a few days until the CCSF Trustees vote on May 10 to try to convince Trustees that a vote for layoffs is a vote for  devastation of [this] institution” and cuts of at least 50%. Read more.  We need everyone–faculty, students, and community allies – standing strong.  Please sign this letter to the Trustees.

City College Allies: Actions for Monday, May 10, in advance of Board of Trustees meeting to vote on the massive layoffs and program cuts.

 1) Call and phone Mayor Breed and Supervisors, demand:

* Prioritize preserving and funding CCSF as a community college.

 * Do not allow cuts to take place which eliminate faculty and programs and strip CCSF down to a junior college.

 * Use your leadership to facilitate an agreement to resolve any problems in funding CCSF at the level it needs to avoid the proposed cuts. 

 * Tell them elected officials of San Francisco have many substantial legal rights and responsibilities in the governing of CCSF that no other California Community Colleges have.  Read more about that here
