We call for a Statewide Day of Action in Defense of Public Education on Thursday, March 1, 2012.
The goal is to build the broadest unity in action of students, teachers, workers, and their organizations — from Pre-K-12 through the CCs,CSUs, and UCs — to call to reverse education budget cuts, tuition increases, and layoffs, and fully fund all levels of public education by making the rich and corporations pay. It is up to each school and organization to determine what concrete local actions they will organize for the Day of Action.
We encourage participants to continue the momentum of the Day of Action by participating in a Walk to Sacramento beginning on Thursday, March 1, which will arrive on foot to the Capitol for the Monday, March 5 rally organized by various student governments. We further support the coordination of mass non-violent actions in Sacramento.
This statewide call to action is issued in coordination with a Call for National Day of Action For Education on March 1, 2012.
