What the Alliance Needs You to Do

The Alliance for the CSU is focusing on signing up as many people as possible, to be ready for a big push in April. From the California Faculty Association (CFA) Headlines this week:


It's important to understand the steps in the state budget process and precisely how you can act most effectively to promote the Alliance cause and build public support for our position that "the CSU is the solution."

The governor has issued an initial budget proposal. It is only that—both preliminary and a proposal. The next step will be some time in early May, when the governor evaluates the latest tax receipts and releases what is known as the "revise." We are mobilizing, first, to persuade the governor that he should restore CSU funding in the revise.

That means that our priority right now is building the Alliance network by signing up Californians from all walks of life, from every region of the state, by the hundreds of thousands. We need the most muscular database we can amass of people who, in three weeks or so, will receive action alerts, on short notice, to make phone calls, send faxes and emails, and speak with one voice at the moment of peak importance.
[Warning: The Alliance for the CSU may share your information with the CSU administration, with or without your permission. There is no way to opt out of this. At this writing, the Alliance does not publish a privacy policy on their web site, or disclose on the signup form what they plan to do with your information.]
