Instructors at San Diego City College will stage a protest Monday (January 29th) from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Arts and Humanities Building, 1442-1494 C Street. They will be supporting a lawsuit filed December 12, 2017, in which three instructors charged the San Diego Community College District and two supervisors for civil rights violations, retaliation, hostile work environment and other alleged abuses.
The supervisors hit with the suit were Rosalinda Sandoval of the Spanish department and Trudy Gerald, Sandoval’s supervisor. The three instructors filing the suit were Salvador Gonzalez, David Becerra, and Antonio Jiminez, who cited a number of actions against them that they considered abusive and prejudicial.
Becerra says that undergraduate students may march in support of the three plaintiffs at a later date. Jack Beresford, director of communications and public relations for the district, would not comment.
