The VEA and NEA are supporting and encouraging people to attend the SOS (Save our Schools) March in D.C. on Saturday, July 30th at 12:00 noon at the Ellipse (President's Park South.) At noon, Diane Ravitch, Jonathan Kozol, José Vilson, Deborah Meier, Monty Neill, and other speakers, musicians, performance poets, and more will encourage, educate, and support this movement and the Save Our Schools March demands.
At 1:30 p.m., we will march to the White House, where the demands will be read, we’ll demonstrate, and engage in a call for continued action to reclaim schools as places of learning, joy, and democracy.
If you cannot make it all the way to Washington, find a state or local event to join– or gather some friends and plan one! Please join in this opportunity to inspire meaningful change and be part of history.
