Everyone knows that educators are the best partiers. Thanks to inspiring educators like you, it's been an incredible first year, and we're excited to party together. As a member-led organization, this year we have:
- Organized with our communities against charter school expansion
Helped thousands of parents get opt-out information and led the movement at multiple schools!
- Stood proud with Fight for 15 workers and los padres de Ayotzinapa
- Hosted our first annual convention
- Crunched the numbers and built giant pencils and erasers against the contract cancellation
- Testified (over and over) at the SRC
- Practiced our organizing skills and learned from some of the masters
- Built political power for public education and endorsed candidates in the upcoming Mayoral and Council Primaries (including a WE member running for council!)
- Connected over 200 dues-paying educators, parents and community members (plus all you allies!) to defend and transform our schools
- Plus many more teacher- and parent-led events, conversations, and actions!
On May 15th, join us to celebrate the One-Year Anniversary of WE with:
✭Great food & drink specials!
✭Live music and a DJ!
✭Kids Fun and Crafts area!
✭Fun for the Whole Family!
✭Catering and entertainment provided by educators and supporters!
Bring your friends, colleagues, kids, significant others, neighbors, and all other friends of public education. Everyone is welcome, whether you're a longtime WE member, interested in learning more, or just want to party!
