SFAI Alumni Stand in Solidarity with Visiting Faculty

May 13, 2014

Dear fellow SFAI Alumni,

My name is Manae and I graduated from SFAI in 2009, the year about 25% of our tenured faculty were unjustly and permanently “laid off.”  I was part of a group of students who tried to organize for reinstatement and a just resolution.

I have recently learned that the current adjunct faculty at SFAI are organizing to join a union.  Unfortunately, the SFAI administration is employing fierce and misleading tactics to oppose their efforts.  Now is the time to show our support for the adjunct faculty unionization effort and to let the administration know that we care about the future of this institution and community.  In the next week, eligible faculty will be receiving ballots and voting on whether to join a union.  Please read the attached statement of solidarity (link below) and add your name!  We are hoping to gather as many names as possible but will continue to circulate the letter for signatures throughout the week.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter,
Manae Ross
