October Days of Action—from teachers to #adjunct faculty #CEW2015

and points/days between. Earlier this month, when I started getting ready for CEW and developing a CEW Archives project, I noticed there seemed to a lot of such days this month. So I made a list ~ with links, of course. That's what I do. What does the list below seeing all those social, environmental and economic justice movements and days of actions side by side, tell us?

From World Teachers Day to Campus Equity Week (leaving Keith's Equality question aside for now) October is loaded with social justice days for speaking out. However important raising public and internal group awareness is, we damn well better do more than show up to table, hang banners, pass out flyers and wear buttons for a few days out of the year.

#RaiseYourVoice: listening, connecting

…with #adjunct/precarious labor advocates and allies, #EdBlogNet, #dlrn2015 participants and others
Today is Blog Action Day, hashtagged #BAD2015 but using the theme hashtag in the subject line even more. This year's theme, reflected in the #RaiseYourVoices hashtag, silenced voices is relevant to adjuncts and other socially and economically precarious communities.

checking in/catching up

but not a return of that the prodigal blogger redux post. Still, this is the longest MIA stretch yet -- from just past mid July to almost mid October -- and 2015 likely to be its thinnest blogging year. Reports, however, of its death have been grossly exaggerated. A modicum of explanatory catching up is in order. Short version: the ripple effect of major life changes.

Mid June I moved from Mountainair, New Mexico, to Yuma, Colorado -- sight unseen. Both are small, rural communities, very different despite commonalities. Just like a comparison / contrast essay prompt: that's another post for another time, another blog. I posted about moving on Work and Life (another blog) and G+ (#clmooc Community)

Here as elsewhere, that ripple effect pushed changes, changed intentions and shifted focus. I'm also looking for more intersections with the rest of my life and other interests.
