Tuesday march across the Brooklyn Bridge to stop teacher layoffs!

Dear Children’s School families,

Children’s School staff and parents signed postcards and called the City Council on Friday morning for Fight Back Friday. Staff, families, and students then headed up to Grand Army Plaza after school for Council Member Lander’s rally against education cuts.

Brooklyn bridge protestThe next step: all out to the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday! See http://www.uft.org/campaigns/tell-city-council-stop-layoffs-keep-kids-out-harms-way for details. Children’s School families, students, and staff should meet in front of school at 512 Carroll Street at dismissal time on Tuesday. We’ll ride the subway together to the Brooklyn UFT (next to the Brooklyn Marriott), where everyone is gathering at 4:00. At 4:30, we’ll march across the bridge for a 5:00 rally at City Hall. If you’d like to bring homemade signs, by all means please do so.

If you get to the Brooklyn UFT separate from the group and want to find us, call me at 347-683-6188.
