Harvard Alumni for a Living Wage

As you know, Harvard's financing is enormously dependent on the contributions of graduates like yourselves. This power you have gives the University a responsibility to take your views on university issues very seriously. The Harvard Living Wage Campaign invites you to support us by making your opinion known to the administration, which can be done in a variety of ways.

Ways you can help

1. Tell the administration what you think by email, phone or fax. It is especially powerful if you let them know that you won't donate to Harvard until a living wage is implemented. Click here for contact info. The Harvard Committee on Employment and Contracting Policies wants YOUR input! Please send an email sharing your views about a Living Wage at Harvard to hcecp@harvard.edu.

2. Organize fellow alumni! To organize your class, sign up for your class listserve and send out a message asking classmates to write the administration saying they won't donate until a living wage is granted. Contact Alex so we know your class has been contacted. How to do this: Send an e-mail to listproc@camail1.harvard.edu requesting membership to your class list. On your e-mail, leave the subject category blank and include a one line message saying: "subscribe HAA-HR19xx your name" filling in xx and your name accordingly. For example: HAA-HR1997 Jane Harvard.

3. Make a pledge to the Witholding/Escrow fund. (more info upcoming)

4. Donate to the Harvard Workers' Center. Click here for details.
