I think we need a little bit more serious preparation for a mobilization but here is the information.
Day of Action at your schools this coming Monday, Nov. 21
We are proud to work in one of the largest and most diverse school systems in the country. Every child, regardless of ethnic background, gender identity, faith or immigration status, has the right to feel safe in our city and especially inside our schools. That’s why we are asking chapter leaders to organize a Day of Action at their schools this coming Monday, Nov. 21. On this day, we will come together to affirm that our schools are safe havens for learning and to demonstrate our commitment to our students and their families. The DOE advises that, as always, staff should not wear or hand out buttons or leaflets that are partisan in nature to students or parents on school premises (the sidewalk in front of a school is okay) or during school hours. Take photos of members participating in the Day of Action and post them on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #UFTDayofAction. Please send your best one or two photos (large size, with captions) to firstname.lastname@example.org for our Facebook and website photo albums.
