FAQ: Solidarity Committee

What does the Solidarity Committee do?
The Solidarity Committee (SolComm) is tasked with community and on-campus activism for the GEO. SolComm works with other unions, such as the Non-Tenure Faculty Coalition (NTFC), as well as other activist groups on campus, such as Black Students for Revolution and Students for Justice in Palestine. If you’re a member who is active in other organizations or activism on campus or in the community, SolComm is ideal for you!

Who chairs the committee?
The SolComm is co-chaired by GEO Solidarity Officer Efad Huq and two others. They can be contacted at efad@uigeo.org.

How often does the SolComm meet and how long are meetings?
Meetings usually take place once per month.  Please see the GEO events page for the next meeting.  Meetings last between one and two hours.
