Striking for Our Students:

Lessons from LA

and the Teachers Revolt

Thursday, 1/31 7:00pm
William James Hall at Harvard,
33 Kirkland St.
[Cambridge; short walk from Harvard Sq T station]



Join Socialist Alternative and teacher activists, including from the Los Angeles teachers union, for a public meeting and discussion on lessons from the LA teachers strike and the fight for public education here in Massachusetts.

Through a one-week strike, Los Angeles teachers and students have won a nurse in every school (300 more nurses), higher counselor to student ratio, 80 more librarians for the district, a 6% raise for all teachers, duty-free lunch for early educators, and more!

Now, teachers in Denver, Oakland, and the state of Virginia are about go on strike over similar demands for their public schools. The crisis of public education exists in every city and state in the US and the teachers strikes over the last year have showed us that the strategy to fight back and win is strikes and unified mass action of teachers, students, and parents.

Join Socialist Alternative and teacher activists for a public panel and discussion this Thursday featuring:

Gillian Russom - United Teachers Los Angeles Board of Directors, High school history teacher
Kathryn Anderson - Chelsea Teachers Union, Democratic Socialists of America, middle school teacher
Genevieve Morse - Executive Board CSU Mass Teachers Association at UMass Boston, member of Socialist Alternative
Kristen Martin - Revere Teachers Union, International Socialist Organization, middle school ESL teacher
