Strike School Part One: Organizing for Power 

Our first of many strike school events will be happening Wednesday, July 10, 6-8 PM and Friday, July 12, 6-8 PM. All rank-and-file scientists are welcome to attend. 

Our strike school curriculum features a multi-part series that will build off of each other. It’s strongly encouraged that you and your colleagues attend each part of the series.
