Help raise $5,000 to bring UTLA strike leaders to Philly so we can make Philly #UTLAStrong!
For nearly two years, 35,000 educators in more than 900 schools in Los Angeles organized to fight for a fair contract. In January 2019 they went on strike for the schools Los Angeles students and families deserve - and won .
How do we make Philly #UTLAStrong?
Join Georgia Flowers-Lee and Gillian Russom from UTLA, Maurice Weeks from Bargaining for the Common Good, and PFT members, parents, and allies, on April 6, 2019 for a day of workshops to learn how the UTLA rank and file are transforming their union, building power, demanding a fair contract, fighting for racial and economic justice in LA - and winning!
UTLA leaders have served as mentors for the Caucus for years, including hosting 10 of us in Los Angeles in August 2017 at a conference designed to support Working Educators and like-minded caucuses. (UTLA is currently led by the Union Power caucus, a sister caucus of WE.)
*Funds will be used to pay for Georgia & Gillian's transportation and hospitality while in Philly, as well as cover convention expenses (hall rental, food, childcare, printing/advertising, supplies, etc.). The Caucus is hosting more organizers this summer so we can continue to learn and grow as an organization. Additional funds beyond our goal will go to support that work.
