WHAT: NC October 7 Organizing Meeting
WHEN: Wednesday, September 15 at 7pm
WHERE: NC State Library, 2nd Floor Rotunda
Join with organizations from the across the Triangle to help plan an action in Raleigh on October 7, a National Day of Action to Defend Education!
Building off the success of the last national day of action on March 4, which saw over 130 actions in 33 states to stop the attacks on our right to an education, October 7 will see tens of thousands of students, workers, and teachers across the U.S. again take to the streets to defend education. Here in North Carolina, we’ve seen a tremendous growth in the education struggle, from the ongoing work on universities to stop budget cuts, tuition hikes, and layoffs, to the fight in Wake County to stop re-segregation and privatization in the public schools, to the organizing to win access to higher education for undocumented youth and the immediate passage of the DREAM Act.
October 7 is an opportunity to link and build unity between these powerful struggles for education here in North Carolina. Join us next Wednesday, September 15 for the first organizing meeting to plan for an action in Raleigh on October 7.
Education is a right!
