A national march/rally for public education is being organized in Washington D.C. on July 22th. Sister marches will be held across the country. We will organize one in Alachua County. I hope each of you will reach out to do something in your area.
The organizers are teachers, counselors, and others supporting public education. This is just getting organized. See the plans below:
Information on the July 22nd DC March for Public Education from the Facebook event. This is not a Women’s March-approved event…yet.
CALL TO ACTION – 4/27/17 – 5/4/17 MARCH FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION SHARE INITIATIVE
We were there for the Women’s March, we marched for Science, NOW it is time to March for Public Education. Right now we have THREE months from our date for the July march. We wanted to let you know that we have contacted the National Parks Service regarding our march and have completed the permit for a march on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
One important detail that remains, however, is WHO will attend. That is a detail that we cannot complete without YOU. I truly believe the next national march should be about public education, and now is the time to begin to make that happen. We need to share this GROUP and EVENT with as many people as possible right now. We are the only group, as far as we know, planning to bring a national march for public education this year.
So, for this SHARE INITIATIVE we have THREE big asks:
1) SHARE & SIGN UP FOR THE EVENT
WE NEED YOUR HELP! While the leadership team has worked hard to establish connections with allies, create content such as videos and inform on legislation, we are ready to branch out and expand our team. If you are interested in joining our team to expand our social media presence or host a satellite march, we need to hear from you this week.
