June 8, 2013 Rally

It's time to raise all our voices in unison to support public education. Educators, parents, students and community members will have the opportunity to speak as one on Saturday, June 8, at the Capitol in Albany.

WHY:  Our professions are under attack.   Our union is under attack.  Public education is under attack.  It's time to raise all our voices in unison to support public education.  Educators, parents, students and community members will have the opportunity to speak as one.  Their voice - your voice - needs to be heard in this era of attacks on our profession and on what's good for students.
 
WHEN: The rally will take place in Albany sometime between Noon and 3 PM. The specific site is still to be announced, but it is likely to be at the capitol.
 
WHO: STA/NYSUT members, their families, community members, school board members and other supporters of public education.
 
HOW: We have reserved a bus so that all who wish to participate can be transported. Buses will likely depart from the STA . Departure time will be around 9-9:30 AM; buses will return by about 6 PM. (times subject to change)

Thousands of New Yorkers are expected to join together on that day in a Fight for the Future of Public Education. Their voice - your voice - needs to be heard in this era of attacks on our profession and on what's good for students.

NYSUT President Richard Iannuzzi gave the rallying cry at this year's Representative Assembly when he said: "Our collective voice must not be wasted or depleted frivolously through unbridled passion, nor should it be left to die on the vine or be reasoned into oblivion. We have come too far in nurturing that voice.

"Our collective voice speaks loud and clear, but there is still more to be done. In his second inaugural address, President Obama told America it was time 'to complete the journey.' We know  that the journey cannot be completed without our voice - without the voice of unions - without the voice of public workers - without public education."

Can we count on you? Save the date - 6.8.13 - and spread the word.
