Our chapter published and distributed another press release today on the developing story of the 24 workers RIF'd (laid off) last month. 

Additionally, we published a thread of tweets explaining the problem and providing some of the data we've collected on why these layoffs were cruel, unnecessary, procedurally fraught, and potentially discriminatory.

The following guest post was written by a worker on our campus.

This evening our chapter sent out a press release related to the 24 recent layoffs announced on our campus calling for a reversal of the decision. In addition, we published two short videos that condense our argument:

"Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble." - John Lewis
