#KeithHoeller's #call4letters supporting Mary-Faith Cerasoli & @InsideHigherEd on her protest…
InsideHigherEd published a piece on Mary-Faith Cerasoli's hunger strike: http://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2014/05/15/adjunct-continues-hunger-strike-after-hospital-visit
I am hoping we can get a press release up later today. In the meantime, Mary Faith needs our help. She wants New York Governor Cuomo to meet with her to discuss the plight of adjuncts in New York state.
You can support her hunger strike by writing to Gov. Cuomo's Correspondence aid, Kelly Brady at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com. Ian Rosenblum is Deputy Assistant Secretary of Education. Ask Governor Cuomo to meet with her ASAP. Given that she started her hunger strike last Friday, it would help to move fast.
