Now, more than ever, community college faculty need to stay vigilant as we face challenges that threaten us. These challenges have come in the form of legislation that impact course offerings and  have a direct effect on faculty salaries, hours, and working conditions.  
 
Prohibitions on repeatability are decimating our arts and performance programs, leading to lower enrollment at our colleges. AB 705, which eliminates the requirement that students take remedial classes, have already resulted in class cancellations. Adjunct faculty have been disproportionately affected by cuts in course sections.
