The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is an official day of service and celebrates the civil rights leader’s life and legacy.
Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. AmeriCorps has been charged with leading this effort for the past quarter century.
AmeriCorps is collaborating with the Presidential Inaugural Committee on the MLK National Day of Service.
Together we encourage you to engage in volunteer service in honor of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. If you are hosting a service project, please register it on the Presidential Inaugural website. Make a commitment to serve in your community on MLK Day and throughout 2021.
Gov. Gavin Newsom's $227.2 billion budget proposal for 2021-22 includes a 3 percent increase in funding for the CSU. Our Union will continue working with legislators to ensure the University spends state and federal monies responsibly and with accountability. We will also advocate for the rehire of CSU support staff laid off last year from campuses that cited lack of funds or lack of work.
There are four priorities the Governor is proposing to enact by the end of February: extend an eviction moratorium for renters (the legislature also wants to provide some financial relief); provide payments and loans to small businesses; provide $600 payments to individuals based on income; and expand COVID-19 vaccinations. No options to raise new state revenue are being proposed by the Governor due to the unanticipated influx of additional state revenue.
Are you telecommuting, working on campus, or doing a combination of both?
Do you provide care for a child or elderly person (Covid-related) that restricts your ability to work?
Your feedback is important as our Union negotiates with the CSU for reasonable, effective policies that keep workers safe while they provide vital services to the University. Take a few minutes to complete the survey now.
As 2020 comes to a close (“Finally,” one might say with relief), we would like to take a moment to acknowledge all our CSUEU brothers and sisters for your grace and fortitude while facing unprecedented challenges. The Covid-19 pandemic turned our lives upside down and inside out – and still CSU Support Staff reported to work.
Some of us remained on-site to maintain grounds, prepare labs and staff health clinics while others performed administrative and IT tasks from home. We collectively helped the University continue its critical mission of educating students.
