This Week, Take Action with #RedForEd!

Our UTLA and OEA colleagues are facing tough contract negotiations and need our support. These fights may be in Los Angeles and Oakland, but the struggle affects us all.  

There are three ways to Take Action:

1. On Friday, Jan. 11, wear red for CTA’s statewide #RedForEd Day of Action. Take a selfie (or a groupie!) and share on social media using the hashtag #RedForEd
2.Sign CTA’s petition to send messages of solidarity and support to UTLA and OEA educators fighting on the front lines for quality public education for their students. We’ll be delivering the messages to educators over the next few weeks.
3. Join or plan walk-in at your school to show your support for public education. Learn more about walk-ins below and at

Take action for smaller class sizes, more nurses, librarians, counselors and psychologists. Take action for less testing and more teaching, safer schools and stronger regulation for charter schools. Take action to support community schools and competitive wages to keep educators from being priced out of the communities we serve. Take action because our fight is for public education across California, and the nation.
