Paint Speedway Red (for Ed!)


    “With our front united in red, let’s take to Speedway and show our fellow Tucsonans that we’re still fighting the good fight!

    Bring yourself and wear some red to show support. This is open to anyone and everyone. Teachers, parents, students, all members of the Tucson community!

    Several organizers are planning to stand at various intersections along Speedway. Wear sun protection and stay hydrated!

    Note: We are representing the education community and the Tucson community at large – no tactics of violence or intimidation will be welcome or tolerated. This is a major roadway, safety is a major concern, stay together, stay visible, stay safe.”
