SOS follow up – meeting in Chicago


From Mike Klonsky:

Thank you to everyone who made the Save Our Schools March & National Call to Action a huge success!

Now it’s time to build on that success here in Chicago and put the Public back in public schools

Following on the heels of the successful march/rally in D.C., the first meeting of SOS/Chicago will take place on Saturday, August 27thfrom 10 a.m. to noon at Jane Addams Hull House, 800 W. Halsted. Because you either attended the SOS march or have expressed an interest in being a part of the national Save Our Schools movement, we are inviting you to this initial get together.

With the 2012 elections around the corner and with teachers, schools and unions under assault nationwide, it has never been more important to come together and be a part of this important struggle. SOS is a national movement pushing for fair and equitable funding of public schools, an end to the high-stakes standardized testing madness, defense of our teachers and their collective bargaining rights, and real school reform based on community engagement rather than the current top-down, corporate-style reform.

Please join us to talk about how we can build something new and important here in Chicago. Please RSVP to:

Hoping to see you on the 27th,

SOS/Chicago Organizing Committee
