Next week on May 1st in cities, towns, and communities across the country, activists will Rise Up to demonstrate the power, resistance, and strength of a social justice movement that is gaining strength and influence by the day. Change is happening – in town halls, in school board meetings – and in the streets of America.
NEA is partnering with the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools (AROS) and the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) to connect members with local actions that support our immigrant students and their families, and to elevate a call for education justice in our public schools in demanding “The Public Schools all Children Deserve.”
