Wear Red in Solidarity with Chicago Teachers on September 10th!

The Chicago Teachers Union has been front and center in the struggle to defend a strong and socially just system of public education for all students. On September 10, 2012, thousands of Chicago teachers and their supports are planning to walk the picket lines. This strike is not just a stand against the mayor and his appointed administration, this is a struggle against the destructive corporate reforms being forced upon schools, teachers, and students across the country.

Please join in this effort with a show of solidarity for the Chicago teachers.We are asking teachers and other supporters across the nation to wear red onMonday, September 10, 2012.

Encourage your colleagues and friends to do the same. Teachers, organize a union meeting in your school to discuss how you and your colleagues can work locally to both support the Chicago teachers and defend public education in your city. Parents, students, and community members please show your support for teachers and our public schools.  This is not just a struggle for Chicago teachers, this is a defense of all public schools.

"Their fight is our fight."
