PROTECT PUBLIC EDUCATION.
Our Students, Our Schools, Our Communities.

Gather at 3:45 p.m.
City Springs Elem/Middle School
100 S Caroline St., Baltimore 21231

Help us DEFEND public education for all.

On Thursday, Jan. 19, thousands of AFT members and allies nationwide will demonstrate against the president-elect's agenda to dismantle public education. We will be part of the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools (AROS) National Day of Action to ensure that all students have the opportunity to live their lives and pursue their dreams free from fear.

AROS demands that:

  • our schools and campuses remain centers of learning that are protected against threats of bullying, racism and deportation;
  • the Senate support public schools by rejecting education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos, who has spent millions of her family fortune to destroy public education; and
  • policymakers increase investment in public schools, make Wall Street and billionaires pay their fair share, and protect Title I funds.

Here in Maryland, we will gather at City Springs Elementary/Middle School, 100 S. Caroline Street, Baltimore, MD 21231, at 3:45 p.m.

We will join hands around the school building in a demonstration to the community that we commit to protect and uplift our public schools. At 4:15 p.m., demonstrators will move inside to hear voices from students, parents, and the community about how public education is under attack locally and nationally.

Join us, and learn what YOU can do in your community to fight for public education!
