W20 Week 8/Endorsement reminder

View this email in your browser
Cast your endorsement vote!

Earlier this week, you received an invitation to vote on potential GTFF political endorsements in your email (Look for an email titled "Your Invitation to Vote"!). Members of the Committee on Political Education (COPE), the Executive Council, and attendees at last week's GMM voted to include the candidates on this ballot as potential candidates for GTFF's endorsement, and now the choice whether we endorse them or not is yours!

Information on candidates seeking our endorsement, including some policy positions and links to more information, can be found in the Committee on Political Education's pamphlet. Take a look before you vote! Candidates seeking our endorsement have been thoroughly researched by COPE, and some have also fielded questions from your colleagues at last week's GMM.

The ballot closes tomorrow night, February 29, at 7:00pm, so take a few minutes to cast your vote and make your voice heard in the endorsement process.

Solidarity Has Infinite Possibilities

Have you talked to your department steward about the Solidarity Has Infinite Possibilities (S.H.I.P.) campaign? We’re currently information-gathering about support structures and resources already in place--or not in place!--in departments on campus. If you have information you’d like to share, get in touch with your department steward, or let us know here: bit.ly/IntlGEresources 

Also, if you haven't seen these signs asking your department about their support for international GEs around, check in with your steward. You can also pop by the GTFF office at 609 E. 13th to pick up a sign and to learn more about how to get involved! 

Door with sign attached. Sign is black with white text, reading "Dear SOJC, what have you done to support your international GEs? Warmly, GTFF." Also includes GTFF logo, and SOJC in red ink.
