“please support this effort in one or more of the following ways”
It’s fun to imagine how something like this would have gone over eight years ago.

Union asks profs to give extra credit for anti-Trump events
Faculty members at a Washington college are being encouraged to award students extra credit for attending a “Day of Resistance” featuring a slew of events condemning the Trump administration.
The event, sponsored in part by Shoreline Community College’s Federation of Teachers, the union representing the school’s faculty, was advertised in a faculty-wide email by English Professor DuValle Daniel, who asked her peers to consider bringing one of their classes to the May Day program.
“If you would like to bring your class to an event, please RSVP,” Daniel wrote, according to an email distributed using a faculty listserv and obtained by Campus Reform.
The email, containing a schedule of events for the “Day of Resistance,” then went on to ask faculty to “please support this effort in one or more of the following ways,” such as giving “students extra credit to attend events on their own,” discussing the history of the “May Day marches and rallies in [their] classrooms and [sharing] information about the 2017 Day of Resistance,” and even avoiding “assigning work that students cannot make up on May Day if they decide to join the immigrant march downtown.”
