(Wednesday, 1/25 from 5-6:30pm) Learn how to lower your student debt: AFT and JwJ Student Debt Clinic

Join us for a student debt clinic.Who’s invited: City College workers, students, and community allies
What: Student Debt Clinic
When: Wed., Jan. 25, 5-6:30pm
Where: City College Downtown Campus

Nationally, AFT is working with Jobs with Justice to give Student Debt Clinics and get people the info they need to enroll in income-driven student loan repayment programs and Public Service Loan Forgiveness. Participants are encouraged to shift their perspectives and stop seeing student debt as just a personal issue, but rather a shared national crisis that will require collective action to address.


(Wednesday, 2/1 from 3-6pm) Unite to protect health care

Trump and the Republican Congress have made clear they will try to gut Obamacare and privatize Medicare. Along with the insurance companies, hospital systems and prescription drug corporations, they will try to shif the cost of healthcare directly onto working people.

Join us for a Rally and Public Meeting
Wednesday, 2/1 from 3-6pm
Milton Marks Auditorium (State Building)
455 Golden Gate Ave., Lower Level, SF

Hard fights at the bargainingtable to preserve coverage may get harder. But in California we know that when we unite to fight the healthcare industry, we can win.


Fightback: Rapid Response Network

Our union has joined the Bay Area Rapid Response Network, organized by our strong ally Jobs with Justice, to defend our communities and respond to raids and repression by standing stronger together.
