The ruling class has been on an offensive to privatize public education by closing schools, attacking teachers, and diverting funds to charter schools. Over the past year, we have seen teachers’ strikes across the nation win gains for themselves and their students. In Oakland, after a 7-day strike, teachers won major concessions from the district. How can we continue to build the movement to defend public education and why is it important to all workers?
Join us for a special guest speaker from the Oakland teachers’ union to discuss their recent victory as well as presentations on the right to public education and the nationwide fightback movement.
$3-10 donation, no one turned away for lack of funds.
Refreshments provided. Wheelchair accessible.
