Please help us collect as many signatures as possible from students, faculty, parents, and alumni at Washington University in St. Louis by our next Student-Worker Alliance General Body Meeting, Thursday October 25, for presentation to the Provost. The University has hired the highest priced union busting lawyer in the country and we think their strategy is to bargain in bad faith until the end of the 2015-2016 academic year, in the hope that without an acceptable contract our St. Louis Adjunct Action union will fall apart and be decertified. Then they can pick us off one by one.

We will soon begin a reading group to discuss "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness" and other books. This will be a visually handicapped friendly discussion group. Second reading TBA. Suggestions include Glennn Greenwald's "No Place to Hide," "the Snowden Papers," William Shirer's classic "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," and frequent CoOp guest John Ikerd's "A Revolution of the Middle, and the pursuit of happiness..," among others.

We are a group of students, faculty, staff, and community members dedicated to community building, social responsibility, environmental sustainability, healthy living, cooperative learning, and leadership, not limited to Washington University in St. Louis affiliates, saving our planet with a kind heart and a sense of humor since 2003. We are NOT just a bunch of college students.
We are horizontally related to our namesake, Washington University in St Louis. Neither owns, controls, or dominates the other.

I heard an interesting interview with two activists, young and old, on NPR's religion program, "On Being," about the new wave of young activism. The thesis was that the new activism is and ought to be aware of the wisdom and life experience of the older generations, to avoid mistakes made in the past, e.g. the sixties. "A movement community invites its critics into the tent," following two habits of the heart, CHUTZPAH and HUMILITY. Please let's put both of these into the new Wash U CoOp Values Box.

Here is my annual "gratuitous faculty advice letter, that I send every Labor Day. This year I send it a week early. The letter is long so I'll be brief:
1) I cannot thank you enough for your support over the years. Relying on a transient group of students and alumni for one's primary support group is a bit risky, but I am honored to be an integral part of this community, and very grateful for individual and collective support. Thank you! I will keep on trying to pay it forward.
