Carolyn Classen posted information in the calendar above about the Arizona Educators United Rally at the Arizona State Capitol scheduled for Noon.
The march this calendar item references is the Arizona Education Association #RedForEd March and Rally (link).
After years of cut after cut to education funding, years of students sitting at broken desks, years of taping textbooks to keep them together, and years crumbling school buildings, we’ve had enough.
On Thursday, Arizona’s educators are walking out for our students.
We’ll be meeting at 10 a.m. at the Chase Stadium and marching to the Capitol Building, where there will be a rally.
Sign up to receive details.
UPDATE: Meet at 10 a.m. at Chase Field for approx. 2 mile, 2 hour march to capitol. Parking available at Chase Field. Rally & programming at the AZ State Capitol 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., with shuttles provided back to Chase Field from 11:00 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.
The teacher organizations will be joined in solidarity with support from their union brothers and sisters in the Arizona AFL-CIO.
Brothers and Sisters,
We are witnessing a national uprising in education fueled by students and educators. I believe we in Arizona Labor have a moral obligation to provide no-strings-attached support and help as needed. We will share what information we have for continued support leading up to Thursday (4/26).
Students demand safe schools in which to be educated.
Teachers demand economic justice to afford educating them.
Thousands of educators and their supporters will converge on the State Capitol as they strike to send a loud, clear message to Governor Ducey and Legislative leaders: The time for flimsy, empty promises of change is over.
