Bring Wisconsin Fight to NYC - Planning Meeting Monday March 14

Do you want to bring the Wisconsin fight to New York City?  
Are you tired of just hearing the only solution to layoffs, defending seniority, and stopping budget cuts is calling your State Senator?  

Well, members of NYCoRE (New York Collective of Radical Educators), GEM (Grassroots Education Movement), and Teachers Unite are ready to organize to bring the fighting spirit of Wisconsin to New York City.   On March 25th, there will be another round of Fight Back Friday actions at schools all over the city. If you're interested in activating your school and coordinating with other teacher activists to mobilize collectively, please attend! This is our opportunity to learn more and plan together. Teachers will work in breakout groups to build networks of mobilized chapters or plan for their schools' participation in Fight Back Friday!

There will also be an eyewitness account from Wisconsin and a discussion about its relevance to our fight in New York against the end of seniority, layoffs and constant media attacks.  All are welcomed and please bring a friend.
