People’s March for Education Justice – NYC
March 4, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
From the Organizers:
On March 4, students, teachers, parents and community members across New York State will come together for the People’s March for Education Justice.
We’ll start at Trump Tower 725 5th Avenue and make our way to Governor Cuomo’s offices at 633 3rd Ave!
As we continue to defend public education from federal attacks by Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos, we march to defend here in New York from Governor Andrew Cuomo. The public investment he proposes in his education budget this year is woefully inadequate and falls way short of being equitable. It will negatively impact our most vulnerable students from early child care to higher education all across the state. Black, brown, immigrant, refugee, low-income, LGBTQIA, English Language Learners, homeless students and students with disabilities, are worthy of an investment that will meet their needs not deny them opportunities to be successful.
*note: If you’d like to march with the GC PSC contingent they will be meeting at 9am at the Columbus Circle fountain.
