Last year, we won a landslide victory in Massachusetts against the forces of privatization, defeating a dangerous ballot initiative that would have drained hundreds of millions of dollars from our public schools.
Now, the struggle continues. We must stand together to resist the plans and policies of Trump, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and Governor Charlie Baker. It is time to demand the public schools and colleges our communities deserve.
That’s why, on May 20, thousands of parents, educators, and students are uniting to demand:
- Full funding for public education, Pre-K through college
- Debt-free public higher education
- Less testing, more learning
- Equitable access to quality education for all students
Rally for Public Education
Saturday, May 20
Boston Common @ Beacon & Charles St
RSVP and find a ride from locations around the state here!
Share with your friends on Facebook here.
Right now, we need your help getting the word out to everyone we can! We’ll be making phone calls from our office to let folks know about the rally for the next two weeks.
The more people we can mobilize, the clearer our message that Massachusetts is willing to stand up for public education.
Can you spend an hour or two of your time making sure that we have everyone in our network with us on the 20th?
Please sign up below for a shift that works with your schedule. All phone banks will take place from 4-6 PM at our new headquarters at 375 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain.
