The first step of the campaign is relatively easy: We want to build a
critical mass of several thousand academics and students who will sign
on to a statement endorsing the campaign. We also want labor, student

in areas where the campaign generates significant support.
We need your help and input on this exciting project. Below are links
to a brief statement for academics to sign on to the campaign and a sample
resolution for organizations. Please review, sign on and circulate among
your colleagues and union members. Consider organizing a house party to
raise funds for the campaign (the campaign is sponsored by the Debs-Jones-Douglass
Institute and contributions to it are tax-deductible). Contact us with
ideas for local activities.
