On May 20, a bright and sunny afternoon on Saturday, a mass rally for the public education took place at the Boston Common. A group of representative organizations including Massachusetts Teachers Association(MTA), Boston Teachers Union (BTU), Massachusetts Education Justice Alliance, and PHENOM (Public Higher Education Network of Massachusetts) showed up in their support of public higher education. Massachusetts Jobs with Justice joined the huge crowd at the rally, standing in solidarity with teachers and students around the state.
Below are a few photos of the rally!
As time went by, more and more people came to join the rally and showed their support!
The crowd brought brilliant homemade signs and posters with catchy lines!
