This spring, teachers and other school workers in predominantly right-to-work “red” states organized together and struck for more education funding in confrontations with their state governments. They won unprecedented gains. What can we – in a “blue” state with collective bargaining rights like California – learn from their experiences? What challenges lie ahead? Join us for this critical discussion with key leaders and activists from West Virginia, Kentucky, and Arizona.

Speakers:

Rebecca Garelli – Middle School Math and Science Educator; Arizona Educators United Lead Organizer

Tia Edison – Elementary School Teacher, Jefferson County (Kentucky) Education Association Executive Board, Black Lives Matter

Barbara Boyd – Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression

Nicole McCormick – Music Teacher PreK-5, Mercer County (West Virginia) Education Association President-Elect
