Parents and Teachers United,
We’ll Never be Defeated!
At February’s general meeting, we heard from candidates from the Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE) on why we need to organize our chapters and take over leadership of the UFT. In March, we heard inspiring words about the power of united communities from Karen Lewis, the president of the Chicago Teachers Union. The political education piece from April’s Member Meeting focused on community organizations. This month educators will hear from parent organizations on how they can support their work and help NYC parent organizations build a fight against the ferocious attacks on public education.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for June, when our third Member Meeting will culminate with a focus on youth/youth-serving groups as part of our look at how our work connects to their efforts.
In addition to our political education piece, there will be more ways to engage in critical discussions around issues affecting education.
Check out the following breakout groups:
- New Teacher Group
- No Human Being is Illegal
- NYCoRE Planbook Organizing
- Working with Parent Groups
If you are interested in leading a break out-group, joining the member committee, or representing your organization, please e-mail Rosie Frascella at email@example.com.
