Join our youth-led action for our education, and for our futures. Our education system here in California has been left in the dust for far too long. Teachers and students are bearing the brunt of the consequences. With the 5th largest economy in the World but one of the worst states in the U.S for per pupil spending - we need to stop spending more on prisoners than we do on students.

Climate Justice and education are the two foremost issues affecting the next generation, and it’s time we took more action to address the latter. With teachers whom are barely floating above the poverty line, with undergrads whom are being crushed under the weight of their student debts, and with high school students being dumped with millions and millions in budget cuts, education reform is now, more than ever, a necessity. And that’s why we are coming out to March for Education on November 9th.

The November 9th March for Education is completely student-led, student-run, and student organized. Students are finally getting involved and taking back their education: let’s go out and support them. Students want a brighter future, and a better, more equal and fair education system. Education is important, and youth voices in education are even more important.

We’ve already marched for science, for gun violence, for gender equality, and for climate.
Let’s finally march for Education!

ABOUT: GEN-Up

GEN-Up is a student-led social justice organization and student-activist coalition that strives to advocate for education through the power of youth voices!

Borne at the wake of many teacher strikes and educational funding disputes, GenUp is for the students by the students. From its bottom to top, youth run all aspects of GenUp. GenUp strives to be a long term agent and champion of educational advocacy and change.

Through community and grassroots organizing engagement of youth, we seek to consistently fight for student representation and youth perspectives on all facets of education advocacy.
GenUp seeks to fight for an education system that prioritizes students and educators first: an education system where all students have equal access to resources, a system where educators have a fair, living wage, and an education system that allows its students and teachers to thrive within their communities.
