When: Thursday, May 20, 2021, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

This summit brings together LAWCHA members, labor activists, Scholars for a New Deal for Higher Education (SFNDHE), and union representatives serving a variety of higher ed workers to discuss the College for All bill and how to use it as a foundation for a bottom-up national movement, one that demands fair funding, fair tuition, and fair labor. SFNDHE successfully fought to include labor provisions that prioritize contingent faculty and tenure-track positions in the College for All bill–but there is still more to be done. LAWCHA members, as labor scholars, higher ed workers, and union organizers, have a vital role to play in this national agenda and the federal legislative battles ahead.
