Budget "Fight-Back" Meetings on Campuses

California Faculty Association (CFA) sent this out late yesterday:

With the 2008/09 state budget still unresolved, CSU advocates– with CFA in an organizing role – are putting together "budget fight back" meetings on all 23 campuses to raise awareness about possible funding cuts and prepare to remind lawmakers that the CSU is the solution to this budget crisis.

These meetings will be open to everyone in the campus community and are being put on by CFA, the CSU Administration, student groups and campus staff unions. The meetings will kick off an advocacy campaign for proper funding for the system.

We strongly urge you to attend!

The following meetings are scheduled. More will be added in the coming weeks:

March 3:Dominguez Hills, Noon-12:50, Loker Student Union, Ballroom A
March 7:Sacramento, 12-1 pm, University Theater
March 10:San Marcos, 1-2 pm, Arts 111 (Theater)
March 11:Channel Islands
March 17:San Francisco, 12-1:30 pm, McKenna Theater
March 18:San Jose
March 20:Sonoma, 12-1:30 pm, Person Theater
April 2:Monterey Bay, 12-2 pm

Please contact your campus CFA Chapter for more information and watch for the All-Campus Meeting coming up on your campus and plan to attend.
