Stand for facts. Stand for science.
“In the days leading up to the strike, a group of West Virginia high school students formed a solidarity group, #SecureOurFuture. The group galvanized students in 12 counties to wear purple to school in a show of support for their teachers and to circulate images of the movement using the #SecureOurFuture hashtag. Last week, The Nation reposted the students’ open letter to West Virginia’s citizens. We talk with them here about their organizing so far and what’s next for the movement. Their answers came to us yesterday after the announcement of an agreement, which was expected to result in the reopening of schools today, and thus do not reflect the latest developments in this fast moving story.”
The organizers of #SecureOurFuture discuss the teachers’ strike and what they’re doing to support it.
Today, we’re a million strong, and we’ve channeled our outrage into impactful action.
We’ve called. We’ve marched. We’ve faxed. We’ve made a difference.
And we’re just getting started! Thank you for standing with us.
