PEF Supports the UTLA

PEF Members:

I want to thank you on behalf of the United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA) for the support you’ve shown so far for the striking educators who took to the streets last week to stand up and speak out for their students and for public education everywhere.

Our support, along with the solidarity being shown by other union members across the country for the UTLA, is being noticed and is showing that we can and we will speak truth to power when right is on our side.

As we take time to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. this weekend, these words come to mind:
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

So, let’s keep our show of support for UTLA educators coming.  What can you do:

* Wear “Red for Ed” this week.  Take a photo and send it to us for posting on our social media pages.  Use hashtags #RedForEd     #UTLAStrong

*  Send a message to Superintendent Beutner now and tell him to stop starving L.A.’s schools.

*Consider making a financial donation to the AROS strike fund at https://www.aros-wearla.com

Let’s continue to support the LA Teachers union and show the nation that we mean it when we say New York State is a Union State. We are #UnionStrong!

Winning the Future Together​

In unity,
Wayne Spence
PEF President
