A New Caucus Oral History: Joan Greenbaum
When Greenbaum became part of the founding faculty at LaGuardia Community College, she became involved in an organization called New Directions, a group of CUNY faculty that embraced direct democracy and sought to address working conditions at CUNY. It would eventually become a New Caucus chapter from the years 1993-1997. In 2000 when the New Caucus won the election and became the leadership of the Professional Staff Congress (PSC), Greenbaum was active in "Health and Safety", a committee that fought for healthy working conditions across CUNY.
Following retirement, she joined the Retiree Chapter and became the editor of their newsletter: Turning the Page.
