Thousands of MEA members, supporters rally at the Capitol

Thousands of MEA members and public education supporters attended MEA Action Day in Lansing Saturday.


The event was organized with the We Are The People coalition to give Michigan citizens the chance to respond to legislative attacks on public education and the middle class. (We’ll post a slideshow from the rally soon, so check back!)

More events are planned – locally and in Lansing.

If you are an MEA member, check with your local union president about local activities. At the state level, MEA leaders and staff continue to meet with lawmakers and other leaders to discuss the impact of budget cuts and many other bills – including House Bill 4152, Senate Bill 7, and others.

As always, stay tuned for more developments. We’ll let you know how you can help fight these unprecedented attacks.
