Once more in 2018, it’s time to show our solidarity as educators and wear #RedForEd on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Dec. 12, educators across the state will wear red to show our solidarity as the lame duck Legislature considers bills that will harm students and school employees alike.
After school, educators will be gathering in Lansing to make our voices heard. From 4-5 p.m., MEA members are welcome at MEA Headquarters in the Board Room (1350 Kendale Blvd., East Lansing, MI 48823) for a briefing about what’s going on with lame duck and best practices for lobbying downtown.
Then, at 5:30 p.m., educators will gather outside the Capitol in Lansing for a vigil to encourage lawmakers value students, respect educators and fund our schools. After the vigil, we’ll go into the Capitol to talk with lawmakers and watch the lame duck session from the galleries.
RSVP for the vigil at actionnetwork.org/events/lame-duck-vigil (we’ll email you updates) – and don’t forget to Wear #RedForEd on Wednesday, Dec. 12!
