President's Message
As 2018 edges closer to 2019, we have increased opportunities to offer gratitude by giving of ourselves to family, friends, colleagues, and even strangers. As we sort out our feelings about the moral and societal failure of another mass shooting and a devastating natural disaster, we search for ways to help.
Student Loan Lawsuit
One of the plaintiffs in the AFT lawsuit against Navient is an adjunct faculty member at one of our LACCD colleges who is also an instructor at Cal State University, Northridge. Rebecca [who prefers not to be identified] has been teaching English composition at the colleges for the past eight years since obtaining her graduate degree, which was funded by student loans obtained through Navient.
Student Interns
At age 15, Jessica Conte began her first job working as a grocery store clerk. Part of the job meant joining her first union. Membership and the overall concept of unionizing quickly struck a chord with her.
