Rally in Olympia

Denise Zender and Barb Cruz had the privilege of representing you at the Education Rally in Olympia. It was a sea of red everywhere you went that day in the Capital. Rosemary McAuliffe spoke at the rally. We then went to hear Mary Lindquist, WEA President, speak to the Ways and Means committee. The day ended with a candlelight vigil on the steps of the Capital.

SEA and SESPA Members,

By now you know we are joining together in solidarity on Monday, November 28, to “WEAR RED FOR ED!”

Our goal is to stand united against more cuts to Washington's public schools.

November 28 is the first day of the upcoming special session, and is a state-wide “Day of Action” for WEA members. Legislators will be looking for another $1-2 billion in cuts from the state budget when they convene in Olympia. Any additional cuts will tie the hands of education professionals and deprive students of the well-rounded, quality education they deserve.

We know how these cuts are affecting our students, and how the education funding crisis in Washington is tying the hands of educators. Enough is enough. The cuts are hurting our kids!

What can you do?

Please remember to “Wear Red for Ed” on Monday (and remind your colleagues too)!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
