No matter where you are, there is an April 4th We Are One event near you!On April 3, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. traveled to Memphis to support AFSCME union sanitation workers. The next day, he was assassinated.
Carrying forward in the indomitable spirit demonstrated by Dr. King, working women and men across this nation will rally in their cities and towns to continue that march toward economic fairness, justice and equality.
Please show that spirit this Monday. Join your fellow educators in We Are One mobilizations across California.
19,000 pink slips have already hit teachers, counselors, librarians and school nurses and the budget breakdown in Sacramento means it could get much, much worse.
But it's about more than that. It always is.
It's about the future of public education. It’s about making our colleges and universities affordable. It's about the future Dr. King dreamed of...and that we're still working toward.
Our state's very future is at stake. Our families, our communities and our students can't afford for any of us to sit this day out.
