Fri. 6.21.13 – RSVP for NYCoRE’s General Meeting

Last NYCoRE General Meeting until the fall!

Students (as) Stakeholders: Connecting with Youth Organizers

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. Last month, we heard from parent organizations on how we could support their work and help NYC parent organizations build a fight against the ferocious attacks on public education.

This month’s meeting will conclude our community organizing series with a youth centered discussion on student organizing in school leadership teams, restorative justice communities, student government, and student groups. Join the conversation to hear from students on how educators can best support the work of our youth in New York City.

In addition to our political education piece, there will be more ways to engage in critical discussions around issues affecting education.

Also check out the following breakout groups:

  • New Teacher Group
  • No Human Being is Illegal
  • Youth Led Breakout Group on Student Organizing
