🍞BREAD FOR ED✏️
Oakland teachers are gearing up for a strike! Public education in Oakland is in a state of crisis-classes are overcrowded, and the Oakland Education Association (OEA) has been without a contract for over a year to win the schools their students deserve!
Oakland students and teachers need your support to win this fight! Bread for Ed is an effort to provide food for those during the strike that will not have access to such resources if they do not cross the picket line. There are 37,000 students and around 3,000 members of the Oakland Educators Association in this fight to defend the public school in Oakland. The vast majority of these students depend on free or reduced lunches, so this food fund is a critical show of solidarity with the Oakland community.
OEA teachers are fighting to defend public education by campaigning for a new contract that provides:
1) Smaller class sizes
2) More student support
3) A living wage
4) Halt to school closures
From West Virginia to LA, teachers are standing up for themselves, their students, and public education. Please help save our schools and fight back against austerity. Donate today and please share widely!
