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.

We can relate to and may have participated in more than a few of the days listed below. We're neither alone, uniquely righteous ~ nor the only worthy cause making an appeal for public support and attention, both finite. That could make us either potential allies or competition. Which way to go is a no-brainer.

  World Day for Decent Work, October 7 
 International Days of Action, October 10-17 - against trade and investment deals that threaten democratic rights, food sovereignty, jobs and the environment
