SUNY Opportunity Advocacy Day – March 11

Dear Colleagues:

UUP is not a union that sits on the sidelines. We are champions for our students, our union, and we are pushing solutions and programs to better New York. For these reasons and more, I am asking you to join your colleagues and invite your students, to advocate for SUNY opportunity programs, access, affordability, and the resources needed to support our SUNY, our students and our communities.

SUNY opportunity programs have been an economic and educational ladder for thousands. We must continue to promote and advocate for these programs as well as new ones such as MEOP, and fight for the necessary revenue to fund them. Please join us on March 11th for our SUNY Opportunity Virtual Advocacy Day! The day will begin with a plenary where we will be joined by students, educators and elected officials. We will then take the remainder of the day to do the work of meeting with state legislators and advocating. You can register today hereAdvocacy registration will close at 5PM on March 4.

All who register for this important event will receive an invitation for a March 10th virtual advocacy training. There will be two training session offered (12PM and 7PM).

Please share this message with your students and your colleagues. All who wish to participate must register using the above link.

Thank you for all the work you have been doing over these past months. Our union is stronger with your voice.

In Solidarity,

Fred Kowal
