• "We’re demanding that we not return to the world we lived in pre-Covid —

    a world with 92,000 homeless New Yorkers and millions of people living

    just one paycheck away from an eviction.”

    "I have hardly any money left once my rent is deducted from my salary.

    I sometimes have to teach adjunct at other universities, in addition to my

    tenured position, to make ends meet. And I am still not always able to do it."

  • TENANTS SPEAK

    Faculty take on adjunct positions, are unable to pay off student loans, and struggle to make ends meet while paying for childcare. Due to COVID-19 many of our colleagues' partners have lost jobs. Many are caring, financially and otherwise, for affected family and kin.
