ACTION ALERT FOR MIAMI-DADE COUNTY
Dear Leader, Educators and Fellow Floridians:For too long and too often, public schools have been the subject of budget cuts, test fixation and privatization. Now, communities and teachers’ unions are coming together to build a new vision for our schools, our children, and our communities—one that champions great public schools and economic opportunity for all as the heart of our neighborhoods. Together, we can make sure our schools are a place where all kids can thrive and the voices of those closest to the classroom can be heard.
We are the catalyst for reclaiming the promise of public education and economic opportunity. This is why the Dade Coalition for Education and Economic Justice would like to invite you to a National Day of Action on December 9th to raise awareness to the growing movement of educators, parents, students, community members and others demanding a new direction for our schools and COMMUNITY. At 4:15pm, at Paul Laurence Dunbar Elementary School, located at 505 NW 20th ST, we will join over 60 cities all across the country in reclaiming the promise of public education and economic justice.
In October, more than 500 educators, students, parents, community organizers, civil rights advocates and faith leaders, representing over 150 organizations, gathered in Los Angeles to endorse “The Principles That Unite Us <https://afl.salsalabs.com/o/4013/c/839/images/Principles%20that%20Unite%20Us_longVersion_FINAL.pdf>” as our common vision for public education and economic justice. These Principles are the common thread that binds us in our fight to save our communities and public education.
We hope you will join us on December 9th in the Media Center at Paul Dunbar K-8. Click here <http://www.utd.org/file_download/1423/Miami+Day+of+Action+Flyer+12+3.pdf> for more information or contact Karyn at firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>.
