Faculty Voice Newsletter: April 2017: Political Education Corner

On March 15th our COPE committee held a successful #IdesOfTrump postcard signing event at the Buttery Bakery in Santa Cruz. Pictured are – Jan Greene, a community supporter and Cabrillo Student, Maya Bendotoff, Tobin W. Keller, and Sadie Reynolds.

The Committee on Political Education coordinates faculty efforts on matters of a political nature and funds candidates, propositions, and causes that Cabrillo faculty— through their representatives on the CCFT Council— choose to support. For instance we organized events and support for Proposition 55 that successfully passed last November. COPE funds are generated from voluntary monthly payroll deductions from individual faculty members; they are raised separately from and in addition to regular dues. All faculty members may become COPE members by completing a COPE card. Co-Chairs are Sadie Reynolds and Tobin W. Keller.
