POLITICAL GAIN: It may be the beginning of September, but CFA activists already are taking political action in preparation for the Nov. 6 General Election.

Last week, CFA members at campuses across the CSU recruited dozens of colleagues to participate in phone banking, hall walking, and other activities to support candidates who value public higher education and hold fast to principles of racial and social justice.

Many also helped faculty, staff and students register or re-register to vote prior to the Oct. 22 deadline.
