From World Teachers Day to Campus Equity Week (leaving Keith's Equality question aside for now) October is loaded with social justice days for speaking out. However important raising public and internal group awareness is, we damn well better do more than show up to table, hang banners, pass out flyers and wear buttons for a few days out of the year.
We can relate to and may have participated in more than a few of the days listed below. We're neither alone, uniquely righteous ~ nor the only worthy cause making an appeal for public support and attention, both finite. That could make us either potential allies or competition. Which way to go is a no-brainer.
International Days of Action, October 10-17 - against trade and investment deals that threaten democratic rights, food sovereignty, jobs and the environment
