 Let us know about petitions we missed & other individual small steps. Help all these along by clicking down the list (the convenience of one stop clicking), taking notice, remembering them, sending them out on the social media of your choice, encouraging friends and colleagues to support them... starting your own. Need help?

Check & click Petition Junction. Do you have an adjunct or higher ed petition? Send us the link to add to our list. Plus, adjunct heroes get a hat tip here too ~ 
  • Another petition to Obama for equal pay for equal work for part time college teachers. Carol Jordan of California Part-Time Faculty Assoc. (CPFA, in CA CCs) writes, "Part time community college instructors earn, on average, 50 cents on the dollar compared to full timers. Moreover, we receive no benefits, no tenure, and no pension. We need pay equity NOW! That's why I signed a petition to President Barack Obama asking him to: Stop balancing college budgets on the backs of part time faculty. Will you sign the petition too? Click here to add your name.
