ATTENTION

The Free college Benefit has been placed on hold for new enrollees. Hopefully, this will not be affecting current students.

The department of Education has asked the college to put the program on hold while they work out some issues with how paperwork and admissions gets processed.

We apologize for the inconvenience and stress this puts on our members and their families, unfortunately we are at the mercy of the Department of education and the College’s lawyers while they handle this issue at hand and hopefully quickly.

As soon as we know more, we will post an update.

Wishing You a Peaceful and Reflective MLK Day



Wishing You a Peaceful and Reflective MLK Day

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his life in pursuit of the vision he preached.

His public diagnosis of the issues with American society – what he called the "three evils" of poverty, racism and war – was especially controversial. By bravely speaking out against these evils, Dr. King was reviled by large swaths of the country for virtually all of the civil rights movement.

After passage of the Voting Rights Act, buoyed with optimism but dismayed by what he viewed as morally bankrupt leadership, Dr. King enraged many when he shifted his focus to combating the causes of these societal ills. But Dr. King, who had already persevered despite the overwhelmingly negative opinion many in power had of him, did not waver. That stubborn pursuit of a morally just world – one that wedded the fight for economic and racial justice together – is what drove a white supremacist to assassinate him in 1968 as he stood with striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee.

As we commemorate his legacy today, we must and shall recommit to the righteous struggle against these three evils in and through both our communities and our unions. We're starting today by calling our senators and telling them to sideline the filibuster, a Jim Crow-era relic, and pass the consolidated Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis ActClick here to be connected to your senators over the phone and click here to write your senators.

May you and your loved ones have a peaceful and reflective MLK Day.

In solidarity,

Team OPEIU
