Red State Teacher Rebellion: What Can California Learn?

June 9 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


This spring, teachers and other school workers in predominantly right-to-work “red” states organized together and struck for more education funding in confrontations with their state governments. They won unprecedented gains. What can we – in a “blue” state with collective bargaining rights like California – learn from their experiences? What challenges lie ahead? Join us for this critical discussion with key leaders and activists from West Virginia, Kentucky, and Arizona.
