It’s possible that if you visited this site you will have agreed with many of the ideas about social change expressed here and find yourself wanting to know more about what you can do to help.
I count myself among the ranks of the academic precariat, what Hil and Lyons writing for The Conversation refer to as the “reserve army of 67,000 casual staff who deliver over half the teaching in Australian universities“.

The single most important thing you can do is to join and fight as part of collective campaigns for economic justice. This could be your industry’s union, a political party, a social movement organisation in your local community, or a nonprofit. Whatever works for you – as long as you overcome the disempowerment of feeling like an isolated individual.
However, if you wish to directly support my research on how social movements are transforming our world, consider making a small donation via PapPal at paypal.me/OneOfThePrecariat. It’s a small gesture, but I really appreciate it. Once you’ve used it, please do contact me so I can say thanks personally and have a chat about what kind of sick society forces us to use charity to survive!
