I hope everyone is getting ready and psyched for the new school year! And I hope a big group of us can make time for–and ask some of our students to join us at–Chicago Troublemakers School August 20, 9:00-4:30 at UIC.

This is a great training and networking opportunity. Unions from around Illinois and the United States will present workshops on how to organize and how to help others learn from each others’ actions and successes and challenges.
At NEIU, we have done fantastic work politically to serve higher ed, our students and communities. The university is going to be stable this year, because we were awesome last year in terms of our hard work and sacrifice and commitment. But we have to plan for and be ready for the coming years. Troublemakers School will be our first collective next step!
