|More than 28,000 thousand Los Angeles educators are on the STRIKE line todayto demand a quality public education for every student. 60,000 joined a rally in downtown Los Angeles today in support. Oakland educators marched the streets this weekend with community allies for public education. Countless educators joined Walk-ins last Friday, sending tidal waves of #RedForEd solidarity both online and offline. Every time you take action, our students’ futures get brighter. You rock! |
CTA President Eric Heins was on the ground in Los Angeles today. Here’s what he had to say about his time spent with UTLA educators:
“The energy was electrifying even in the downpour, and the vibe screamed commitment to each and every one of L.A’s students. Cold, wet hair, soggy clothing and drenched shoes and socks was pretty much the look today and it was donned proudly for the sake of the kids.
Every single educator walking the line today is a hero. Onward to Day Two!”
Let’s keep up this incredible momentum!
