May is going to be a very busy month with many states holding #Red4Ed and public education actions!
It’s a great way to shift into May, since May 1st is May Day – International Workers Day.
here is a brief history of May Day.
Even before the month officially starts, we have some actions on our radar!
Tennessee is embroiled in an intense battle to fend off vouchers.
NJ21United will be delivering their evaluation to NJ Senate President Steve Sweeney
And South Carolina
New Jersey is jumping in with state-wide events to show union solidarity, including some protests/picket lines in some of some legislative offices.
It looks like NJ21United may even extend these actions further into the month.
Oregon is gearing up for action on May 8th with simultaneous rallies taking place in different areas of the state.
Arizona Educators United has decided that the whole month needs to be full of different actions to ramp up continuous pressure!
All of this action has some folx wondering, what would a set of national demands look like?
Let’s start having that conversation.
