March For Public Education in Washington DC

We wanted to make sure that you all were aware of the March for Public Education taking place this Saturday, July 22nd in Washington DC along with sister marches across the country. This March was cofounded by an NEA member from Pennsylvania.  NEA has recently provided financial support for the March and has been coordinating with the co-chairs. We are excited that this has been an organic movement by members to organize marches across the country and NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia plans to address the crowd gathering in Washington DC.


NEA is helping to promote the marches on our social media channels and through email blasts in the days leading up to the event. We encourage you to do the same for any of the sister marches in your states. We also encourage everyone to participate in marches if you choose.
