We interviewed Glencora Boraradaile, professor of Computer Science at Oregon State University and active in the recent campaign to unionize faculty at OSU.
Professor Borradaile is also active in the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), providing legal support for frontline activists across the country.
We spoke with Professor Borradaile about their experience in the union campaign to form the United Academics of Oregon State University (uaosu.org) as well as their reasons for getting involved in labor organizing and other forms of activism.
Cora highlighted the formativeness of growing up in a welfare state shaping their ethical and moral standards, and how they came to realize the necessity of becoming active in social struggles.
